The injured man boarded this bus and another looking for help following a shooting.
After being shot in Southwest Philadelphia, a man fled two blocks before boarding two SEPTA buses looking for help.
The unidentified man was shot in the leg at 57th and Washington Ave. around 7 a.m. on Wednesday and made his way to a southbound Route G bus at 58th and Baltimore Ave., a SEPTA spokeswoman said. That's about two blocks away.
SEPTA officials say the man boarded that bus, told he driver he had been shot and then left as the driver called authorities for help.
After leaving the southbound bus, the man made his way to a northbound Route G bus where he stayed until first responders arrived, SEPTA officials said.
The victim was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for treatment. His condition has not been released.
Philadelphia Police are still searching for the shooter.
