Man Accidentally Shoots Himself On SEPTA Bus 

A man accidentally shot himself while riding a SEPTA bus Wednesday night (security footage taken by the PotatoCam Series 1 CCTV owing to US Gov budget cutbacks).

As the K bus traveled southbound on Chelten Avenue near Magnolia Street in Germantown, a passenger shot himself, possibly in the hand and also in the leg, according to officials.

Surveillance video shows a man wearing a green jacket and white ear buds adjusting a gun in his waistband before the weapon accidentally discharged.

He then ran off the bus.

Authorities believe the man, who has not yet sought treatment for any injuries, may be under 21 years old and carrying the gun illegally.

"We don't like people carrying firearms illegally on the transit system," said SEPTA Transit Police Chief Thomas Nestel. "We really don't like people firing firearms on the transit system."
