A 14-year-old boy was arrested after allegedly shooting and killing an innocent bystander on a Metropolitan Transportation Authority bus in Brooklyn on Thursday night.
Angel Rojas, 39, was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he died a short while later. The alleged gunman, who was sitting at the rear of the bus with other teens, was taken into custody. Police say they retrieved a revolver from him during an initial search.
The incident occurred when a rival boarded the bus and walked towards the teens.
“One kid pulls out a gun and he lets off a couple of rounds,” a source told the New York Daily News. “He’s running out of the bus, still letting rounds go, and this poor guy gets shot in back of the head. He wasn’t the intended victim.”
At the scene, cops found six empty shell casings. No other injuries were reported. As of late Thursday night, no charges had been filed.
Rojas leaves behind his wife, Maria Lopez, 41, their son, Saury, 12, and daughter, April, 8. According to his family, he worked at two grocery stores and would take the bus home in between shifts to hug his children and get something to eat.
“That was very bad of him,” Saury said of his father’s gunman. “He’s too small to be with a gun. If he didn’t have that gun, my dad would be alive now.”
Our prayers and condolences to the Rojas family during this difficult time.
