Video shows passengers diving on floor as gunman shoots at SEPTA bus in Chester
CHESTER, Pa. - FOX 29 has obtained surveillance video that captured the terrifying moment a gunman opened fire on a SEPTA bus that was occupied by a driver and several passengers.
The incident occurred just after 10 p.m. on Oct. 26 on the Route 113 bus in Chester.
Surveillance video from the incident obtained by FOX 29's Steve Keeley shows a gunman, armed with a handgun, firing multiple rounds into the side of the bus.
Prior to the shooting, video from inside the bus showed the suspect entering through the front door and standing next to the bus driver.
The suspect appears to be waiting for a passenger on the bus to get off. When the passenger doesn’t get off, the suspect exits the bus and begins shooting at the bus from the street.
Passengers can be seen running and diving to the floor to avoid the gunfire, while others can be seen running for cover in the back of the bus.
