Man arrested after gun goes off at Houston Greyhound bus station

HOUSTON

It happened about 7:40am. Police say Marcus Ashby was sitting on the floor and put something in his front pocket when his semi-automatic pistol accidentally went off. The bullet hit the ground and fragments hit a person next to him in the buttocks.

When asked about security practices, Greyhound said, "Greyhound has security cameras and security officers in our terminal around the clock in our Houston location and the company has an excellent safety record."

Ashby is charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon.
