PHILADELPHIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A grocery store employee in Philadelphia says he is thanking god and his belt buckle for saving him from a stray bullet.
The bullet lodged in the metal buckle he was wearing.
Surveillance video shows the man about to wheel a cart outside a store when he drops to the ground.
He says he heard gunshots and hit the floor.
Surveillance footage from another camera shows a man on a bike firing a gun outside the market before running inside.
The victim says he didn't know he had been hit until someone saw a hole in his shirt.
“The bullet hit right here. Today, when I took it down out of the belt for the pain, it broke right here," said Bienvenido Reynoso.
A second victim was not as lucky. He is listed in critical condition after being shot in the stomach.
The suspect was caught a short time later. He's now facing attempted murder charges.
