Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement that it believes the North Korean ship crossed the sea boundary due to bad weather and an engine problem.
No further violence was reported.
It's the second time that South Korea has fired warning shots to drive back a North Korean ship in the area since South Korea's current liberal government took office in 2017.
The first incident happened in September, according to South Korea's military. ■
