A Queens man has been accused of shooting two relatives in Elmont, killing one in a family feud over his 3-year-old son on Monday morning.
Nassau County police said Wilfred Labossiere and the child’s 51-year-old grandmother got into an argument over the phone about visitation after the suspect had dropped the boy off at the victim’s Oakley Avenue home shortly before 11 a.m.
The 31-year-old Far Rockaway man then returned to the home, where the argument with the grandmother escalated to a physical fight with another relative, Christopher Mullings, 29, of Roosevelt, police said.
Labossiere pulled out a handgun and fired multiple shots, striking both victims, police said. He then drove the grandmother to a local hospital and fled the scene, police said.
Mullings was pronounced dead at the scene. The grandmother is listed in critical but stable condition.
Police stopped Labossiere’s vehicle in Far Rockaway, where he was arrested. He was charged with second- degree murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
He will be arraigned Tuesday in First District Court in Hempstead.
