MIAMI (AP) -- A South Florida teen has been charged with fatally shooting a girl in front of her sister and several other students while riding the bus to school.

Miami-Dade police say the 15-year-old was taken into custody at the scene in Homestead on Tuesday morning and later charged with manslaughter and carrying a concealed firearm. The Associated Press does not identify juvenile offenders.

An arrest report says the minor took a gun from his backpack and began displaying it on the bus. He then fired it once, hitting 13-year-old Lourdes Guzman. She was airlifted to a Miami hospital, where she died.

Eight other children, including Guzman's 7-year-old sister, were on the bus but were not harmed. Authorities took the children and the bus driver to a police station to be interviewed.
