    November 20, 2012

    A 13-year-old girl was shot to death in front of her sister and several other students while riding the bus to a charter school Tuesday, Miami-Dade police said.

    A male student was in custody but authorities did not release his name or age and said they are still interviewing him. A gun was also recovered at the scene in Homestead, south of Miami, but authorities didn't say where or how many times the victim was shot.

    "We still don't know what the motive may have been," said police spokesman Det. Alvaro Zabaleta.

    What in God's name can be a motive for shooting a 13 year old girl?

    How sad is this?

    The poor sister.

    Authorities: Father of slain girl commits suicide (AP)
    LAUDERDALE LAKES, Fla. -- Authorities say the father of a 13-year-old girl who was fatally shot on a school bus in South Florida last month is dead in an apparent suicide.

    The Broward Sheriff's Office said 34-year-old Armando Alexander Guzman was found dead in a car near Fort Lauderdale Thursday morning from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. A witness called 911 after noticing a bullet hole in the car's window and a person inside.

    Guzman's daughter, 13-year-old Lourdes Guzman-DeJesus, was shot in neck on the way to school in Homestead on Nov. 20.

    A teen who accidentally shot and killed a classmate on a school bus in south Miami-Dade has accepted a plea deal.

    Jordyn Howe was charged as an adult with manslaughter, possession of a firearm and possession of a concealed weapon for the shooting which claimed the life of 13-year old Lourdes Guzman-DeJesus.

    Miami-Dade Cournty Court Judge Ellen Sue Venzer sentenced Howe to juvenile sanctions which Ron Book, the attorney for Guzman-DeJesus’ family, called ‘heroic’, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald.

    That video is an invaluable lesson in forgiveness - there's a special place in Heaven for that mom of the victim.

    The shooter apparently had been showing that gun around school for 30 days prior and no one said anything (according to victim's family attorney/spokesman).....shooter's mom ''could'' face charges too -- think we may be hearing more about this in days to come.

    All I can say is shooter got off light.
