‘We need action now’: de Blasio and mayoral hopefuls react to Queens boy’s fatal shooting

Much like last summer’s murder of a one-year-old infant in Brooklyn, the shooting death of a 10-year-old boy in Queens on Saturday night set off a new wave of public outrage over gun violence in the five boroughs.

Justin Wallace, 10, was gunned down outside a home on Beach 45th Street in Edgemere, Queens after a gunman ambushed him and his 29-year-old uncle at about 9:33 p.m. on June 5. Wallace took a gunshot to his torso and later died at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital; his uncle is now recovering from a bullet wound to his shoulder at Jamaica Hospital.
