New York City police have arrested a 14-year-old boy after allegedly firing a gun inside a bus in a suspected gang dispute, killing an innocent bystander.
Kahton Anderson, 14, charged with second degree murder for the shooting that tragically killed Angel Rojas, 39 — and may be tried as an adult, say sources.
The victim leaves behind a wife, two children and a grieving family.
Angel Rojas, reportedly a Dominican immigrant, was shot in the head.
Authorities have not located the intended target of the shooting, but have apprehended a teenager and the weapon he allegedly used.
New York City’s homicide rate fell to a record low last year.
The shooting occurred on a bus in Brooklyn on Thursday evening.
As passengers fled, the suspect got off the bus, in the Bedford-Stuyvesant district, and fired five more shots at a person running away.
Angel Rojas was rushed to a local hospital, but died a short time later.
