PHILADELPHIA — An Amtrak police officer has sued the national rail corporation, claiming it's liable for an incident in which a woman was able to grab his gun and shoot him in the foot.

James Bullard, 65, a 29-year veteran of the Amtrak force, was working at 30th Street Station on March 9, 2008, when he got in line at McDonald's to buy a cop of coffee, according to the suit, filed in Common Pleas Court in Philadelphia.
