NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A 14-year-old boy appeared in court, and was ordered held without bail in the fatal shooting on a Metropolitan Transportation Authority bus in Brooklyn, police said Friday.
The teen — Kathon Anderson — is also charged with criminal possession of a weapon and criminal use of a firearm, police said. He was marched out of the 79th Precinct in Brooklyn early Friday evening.
Anderson has been charged as an adult with murder, and thus, his name has been released.
In court, a judge said Anderson admitted to opening fire on the bus and shooting Angel Rojas, 39, in the head.
Rojas, a father of two, was killed after the suspect opened fire on a crowded B15 bus in Bedford-Stuyvesant, police said. It happened around 6:30 p.m. Thursday near Greene Avenue and Marcus Garvey Boulevard.
