Young was arraigned on Wednesday before Queens Criminal Court Judge Toko Serita, according to the news release. He was charged with murder in the second degree, attempted murder in the second degree, assault in the first degree and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.

“There isn’t a parent alive who doesn’t mourn this family’s loss, another tragic result from gun violence,” said District Attorney Melinda Katz in the statement. “The defendant allegedly fired repeatedly into an occupied house, is now in custody and faces justice in our Courts.”

Young’s next court date is set for June 14, and if he’s convicted, he faces up to 25 years to life in prison, according to the release.

According to the charges, video surveillance from the evening of Saturday, June 5 allegedly shows Young approach the home Wallace was in and fire multiple shots into the residence, Katz said. Wallace’s 29-year-old uncle was also hit twice, once in the neck and hand, according to the release.
