A stray bullet from a fury of gunfire hit the window of a Manhattan charter school Thursday morning, according to the NYPD.

Officials responded to a call of shots fired at Forsyth Street and Broome Street at around 9:30 a.m. They said an unknown man fired several shots at another unknown person.

In the process, a stray bullet hit the window of the Great Oakes Charter School on Delancey Street and shattered the window, according to the NYPD.

No students were in the classroom, but a teacher was inside the room alone at the time of the incident, sources said.

Sources told PIX11 news the window was double-paned; the bullet shattered both the outer and inner panels.

After striking the window, the bullet did not land in the school.

There were no injures and no arrests.
