I wasn’t charged! And neither other were injured just me and I guess they called the police.

Ok, then at this point, you would just need to contact the police and find out what release form you need to file to request possession of your firearm back if no one is being charged with anything. If there are no pending charges where the firearm is evidence, then they would have to release it to you.

thanks
