PHILADELPHIA -

Police have released surveillance video of a SEPTA bus altercation that they say could have turned violent and deadly.

The incident happened on Sept. 18 around 10:45 a.m. on the Route 23 bus at 12th and Wallace streets.

According to SEPTA Police Chief Thomas Nestel, two men got into a brief argument on the bus and seconds later got off at the 12th and Wallace stop. After getting off, one man points a .40-caliber semi-automatic at the other in the video, police say. The man at whom the gun was pointed ran away without injury. The driver of the bus called 911 after trying to intervene.

The suspected gunman was found in possession of a legal-to-carry weapon, so police later released him. However, SEPTA is continuing to investigate and would like the victim or witnesses to come forward.

Anyone with additional information is urged to call SEPTA police at (215) 580-8111.
