Suspect in custody for fatal shooting of 10-year-old NYC boy

Police have a suspect in custody in the senseless killing of a 10-year-old Queens boy, law enforcement sources told The Post on Tuesday.

Charges have not been filed against the person, who was being questioned by detectives, the sources said.

Cops also recovered a gun tied to the suspect, and are checking to see if it was the weapon used in the Far Rockaway shooting, according to the sources.

Chilling surveillance video showed the gunman walking on the sidewalk in front of a home on Beach 45th­ Street around 9:30 p.m. Saturday night, reaching his arm through its iron railing — and pumping a barrage of bullets at the house.

Fifth-grader Justin Wallace took a bullet to the abdomen, and his 29-year-old uncle suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the shoulder.

The slain boy’s father, Albert Wallace, told The Post on Sunday that the shooting stemmed from a long-simmering dispute between his relatives and their neighbors over a shared driveway.
