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.
Authorities say a 15-year-old student pulled a gun from his backpack and fired it. Eight other children, including Guzman's 7-year-old sister, were not harmed. The student is charged with manslaughter and carrying a concealed firearm, and prosecutors have said they plan to try him as an adult.
