A Queens man has been charged in connection with a double murder Friday afternoon in Jamaica at an apartment building -- and on a MTA bus.

Damel O. Burton, 34, of Foch Blvd., Jamaica, was arraigned Saturday evening in Criminal Court. He faces two counts of murder, one count of attempted murder, weapons possession and assault. The judge ordered him held without bail.

Should Burton be convicted, he's looking at a prison term of 25 years to life.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown says Burton shot Keith Murrell, 18, once in the chest around 3:45 p.m. at his home. The victim jumped out of a window and tried to get away; he was pronounced dead at Jamaica Hospital a little more than an hour later.

Meanwhile, the DA says Burton then took off, boarding the MTA Q111 bus, with 50 passengers on board; that's when he allegedly shot Marvin Gilkes in the back of the head, killing him. According to Brown, Burton also shot another man in the face. The victim had to have surgery and is recovering at Jamaica Hospital.

Onlookers at the scene of the bus shooting couldn't believe what happened, and say more needs to be done to protect bus drivers and passengers.

"I've seen plenty of fights on the bus, seen somebody slap a bus driver, pull knives on each other. It's all the time... mostly the 111 or the 113," Joann Brown said.
