    Authorities say the father of a 13-year-old girl who was fatally shot on a private school bus in Homestead last month is dead in an apparent suicide.

    Armando Alexander Guzman, 34, was found dead in a car near Fort Lauderdale Thursday morning from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, the Broward Sheriff's Office said.

    A witness called 911 after noticing a bullet hole in the car's window and a person inside, according to the BSO.

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