A second person has been arrested in the murder of D’aja Robinson after she was shot to death on a Queens bus in May 2013.

Updated 2:27 p.m.

A Brooklyn teenager has been charged with the murder of a 14-year-old girl who was gunned down on a Queens bus last year, officials said.

Shamel Capers, 16, was arraigned Wednesday on charges of second-degree murder, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment in the deadly shooting of D’aja Robinson, according to the district attorney’s office.

Robinson was shot in the head after boarding a Q6 bus near Sutphin and Rockaway boulevards in Jamaica on May 18, 2013. She was on her way from a sweet 16 party when she was killed.

Prosecutors said Robinson was not the intended target when Capers fired multiple times into the bus.

About a month after the shooting, Kevin McClinton, 22, was also arrested on second-degree murder and other charges in the death of Robinson. He is accused of taking the gun from Capers and continuing to fire into the bus, according to District Attorney Richard Brown.

McClinton, who had a court appearance Wednesday, is currently being held without bail. His case is set for trial on Sept. 22, prosecutors said. Capers is also being held without bail and is due back in court on Aug. 13.
