NEW YORK (CBS 2) – The suspect accused in Friday’s deadly shooting rampage that ended on a city bus now faces multiple charges.

The teen jumped out of a window and later died of his injuries.

Police also accused Burton of opening fire on a Q111 bus, killing one person and wounding another.

The wounded victim was shot in the face, but survived.
