NEW YORK — A 15-year-old boy has been convicted of murder in the fatal shooting of a fellow passenger on a New York City bus.
A jury convicted Kahton Anderson in Brooklyn on Monday of charges including second-degree murder and attempted assault.
The Brooklyn teen faces 15 years to life in prison at his Feb. 18 sentencing.
Prosecutors say Anderson asked investigators if he'd shot a rival or an innocent man in the March 2014 killing of 39-year-old Angel Rojas.
Lawyers agreed that Anderson shot at three rival gang members on the bus. The retrial focused on whether Anderson thought they were about to attack him.
Anderson, a member of the Stack Money Goons gang, had said he acted in self-defense after other gang members had shot at him that day.
