A 14-year-old boy has been charged in connection with the shooting on a Market-Frankford Line train Sunday, SEPTA authorities said.

The teenager, whose name has not been released, was charged with aggravated assault and related charges after two projectiles were fired at a train about 10:35 p.m. as it was leaving the Tioga station, SEPTA police said.

The incident happened after a brief altercation on the train, SEPTA police said. The gunman then got off the train, pulled a gun from his bag and fired into the train, hitting the train window with one shot.

There were several passengers on board at the time, but there were no injuries.

The suspect was arrested Thursday morning, SEPTA police said.

SEPTA customers can report incidents through the SEPTA Transit Watch app or through emergency call boxes at all stations and in vehicles.
