According to Biloxi police, a gun went off inside the downtown Biloxi Waffle House early Friday morning.  The bullet shattered one of the restaurant's windows.  Moments later, the gun's owner was taken to jail.

Police say Sam Edward Yu is charged with attempted aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.  The 21-year-old is from Montgomery, Alabama. 

Yu reportedly entered the Waffle House with two women.  While in the restaurant, Yu allegedly got into a verbal fight with a couple of men already at the Reynoir Street diner.  During that exchange, police say Yu pulled out a gun and pointed it at one of the men.  Witnesses tell told police the man lunged at Yu, and as they fought, the gun went off.

Several customers reportedly jumped in.  They grabbed the gun, threw it over the Waffle House counter, and held onto the suspect until police arrived.

Nobody was injured by the flying bullet, or the shattered glass.

Yu is in jail on a $100,000 bond.
