VIDEO: Accidental 40th Street shooting strikes woman

A woman suffered mild injuries from an accidental gun shot Friday at the 40th Street station of the Market-Frankford Line.

The gun discharged within a man’s bag by accident while he was rummaging through it and struck the 22-year-old woman in the face and arm at 3:17 p.m. on Friday.

Police say the bullet hit a bench, bounced off a wall, went through a trash-can and struck the woman in the side of the face and on the arm.

Surveillance footage shows the woman react and stand in confusion after being struck.

The man got on the next train but later turned himself into police, NBC reported.
