A former MTA bus driver suspected of shooting his ex-girlfriend and her daughter in a bloody rampage before turning the gun on himself has died, cops said Sunday.
Jorge Vega, 52, died at Jacobi Medical Center on Thursday, one day after the tragic Bronx murders, police said.
Vega gunned down Susan Trivino, 54, and Suchari Guzman, 29, inside the women’s home on E. 174th St. near Cross Ave. in Soundview, officials said.
The vengeful city employee-turned-gunman then blasted himself in the head, but he survived and was taken to the hospital in critical condition. It emerged Sunday that he had died from his injuries.
Baby spared in Bronx double homicide cried out for her dying mom
Guzman’s 1-year-old baby girl, Abbygail, was in the room and wailed for her dying mother, crying, “Mama! Mama!” The terrified tot was spared in the bloodbath.
Cops said that Vega had a tumultuous relationship with Trivino in recent months and that a domestic incident report was filed with the NYPD four months before the killings. The two met when they both worked as MTA bus drivers.
