Child dies after school bus shooting

HOMESTEAD, FL (WFLX) - A 15-year-old boy will be charged with manslaughter after a deadly shooting on a Homestead bus.

According to an arrest affidavit, the boy took out a gun on the bus and displayed it. The gun went off striking 13-year-old Lourdes Guzman-DeJesus. She was airlifted to Miami Children's Hospital where she died.

After the shooting, many parents rushed to the school to see if their kids were ok. "It is scary to find out your kids are in this. You never expect it; you expect them to go to school safe. I'm here, and thank God that they're ok," said a child's mother.

Seven students witnessed the shooting including the victim's younger sister.
