BROWNSVILLE - The family of a man fatally shot on a B15 bus last week received some financial help from their community.

Angel Rojas, 39, was shot in the head on a B15 bus last Thursday as he was on his way to work. The suspect who killed him, 14-year-old Kahton Anderson, is now facing charges of second-degree murder, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal use of a firearm.

Rojas left behind a wife, Maria, and two young children. To help them cover funeral expenses, the Bodega Association of the United States raised $5,000. Rojas worked at two different bodegas and was killed as he was commuting from one job to another.
