PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Investigators say a man was saved by his belt buckle when he was hit by a stray bullet during a shootout outside a Philadelphia grocery store.

WPVI-TV reports (http://bit.ly/Yn1t4N ) it happened in the city's Grays Ferry section around 4 p.m. Wednesday. Police say a man was shot in the stomach on the street and a bullet also hit an employee inside 8 Brother's Supermarket.

The 38-year-old employee, Bienvenido Reynoso, says he was about to take a hand truck outside when shots started flying. He hit ground and surveillance video shows a snack cake being shot off the shelf above his head.

He says he didn't realize he'd been hit until someone pointed out he had a hole in his shirt. That's when he found the bullet in his belt buckle.
