A Minnesota man is now facing a charge of second-degree murder after a 75-year-old bus passenger who was allegedly assaulted last week died of injuries.
23-year-old Leroy Davis-Miles of Minneapolis was initially charged with the felony assault in connection with a Nov. 6 robbery that occurred at the Chicago-Lake City Transit Center, FOX 9 of Minneapolis-St. Paul reports.

Surveillance footage shows an elderly passenger asking Davis-Miles and others to lower their voice the man after getting off the bus, the report said.
According to video footage and witness accounts, Davis-Miles later punched an elderly man off the bus, causing him to fall back and hit his head on the sidewalk, police said.
After the man fell, Davis-Miles shook hands with his friends "afterwards," after which several members of the group dug into the victim's pockets while lying unconscious on the ground, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.
Police told FOX 9 that the man suffered a serious brain injury and died at 13:36 on Tuesday, becoming the 39th homicide victim of the year in Minneapolis.
