SEPTA officials are trying to identify the passenger who accidentally shot himself on a bus in East Germantown earlier this week.
The incident happened at about 6:15 p.m. Wednesday, when the man apparently shot himself while adjusting a firearm in his waistband while he was riding a Route K bus.
Surveillance video the transit agency released today in an effort to identify the passenger appears to show the man getting shot in the hand. He then exits vehicle after the incident, near Chelten Avenue and Magnolia Street. Authorities found blood on the bus.
SEPTA Transit Police Chief Thomas Nestel said officials want to identify the man and suspect he may have been carrying the gun illegally.
