The father of a 13-year-old girl who was shot and killed while riding a school bus in Miami last month has committed suicide just over a month after the original tragedy. Armando Guzman's body was found dead inside a car near Fort Lauderdale on Thursday.
A passerby called 911 after noticing a gunshot in the car's window and a body inside. Authorities believe that the gunshot was self inflicted. Guzman was 34 years old.
