2nd boy arrested in Crown Heights school bus fire

A second 11-year-old has been arrested in connection with a school bus fire Sunday in Crown Heights.



Earlier this week, another 11-year-old was arrested for his alleged role in the fire. Police made it clear that more arrests would follow. They announced Thursday that a second boy was in custody.



Surveillance cameras appear to capture the boys setting a bus parked outside of a Jewish high school on fire, igniting some sort of cardboard inside the bus before fleeing. No one was hurt.



Investigators say all indications point to the incident being a hate-motivated arson.



Police are still looking for four more boys who were involved in the fire.
