PHILADELPHIA (AP)— A belt buckle saved a supermarket employee by stopping a stray bullet from a shootout outside a Philadelphia grocery store, police said.
Bienvenido Reynoso, 38, said he was about to take a hand truck outside late Wednesday afternoon when shots started flying, so he hit the ground inside the store, WPVI reported. Surveillance video shows a snack cake being shot off the shelf above his head.
Police said a man was shot in the stomach on the street outside the store in the Gray’s Ferry section of the city. No arrests have been made.
Reynoso said he didn’t realize he was hit until someone pointed out a hole in his shirt, and he discovered the bullet in his belt buckle.
