Police are questioning a 16-year-old boy in the shooting of a14-year-old girl on a Queens bus last weekend, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Thursday.
The shooting on Saturday was believed to be over a dispute with another gang, and he was allegedly firing at other gang members on the street when the gunshot went through the window of the bus and hit Daja Robinson in the head.
Kelly said police had been looking for the suspect since "shortly after the shooting, and we're speaking to him now."
The boy was picked up at his home in the Rockaways, police said.
Robinson was on her way home from a sweet 16 party, police said. She was sitting about three rows from the back of the bus when she was struck.
The mother of the girl who was killed said earlier this week that she "can't accept that she's been shot."
"She didn't deserve it, at all," Shadia Sands said.
