San Francisco police are investigating their own department after officers reportedly missed finding a gun on a female suspect who was booked into the Tenderloin station Saturday.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle: a police spokesperson would only say officers heard a shot come from the holding area just after 11:00 Saturday morning. When they went in officers found a woman detainee and a small handgun on the floor. Nobody was injured.

Police have not identified the woman other than to say she was being held on an outstanding warrant and drug possession.
