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.

Officials from the Bodega Association also want to establish an education fund for his two children.
