Wallace ran out of the house on Beach 45th Street and said, “Why is my son lying here?”
“I walk up to my son and when I turn him around, I see this pile of blood,” said the father.
“And when I saw the pile of blood, I said, ‘Justin, Justin, are you okay son? Don’t react, don’t react. ‘”
Wallace, while speaking on his shirt, which was still stained with the blood of his sixth-grade son, said he believed the shooting took place over the course of a year of meat between his sister’s family and their neighbors on a driveway. Police sources confirmed the alleged motive for the shooting to the Post.
Wallace said his nephew had parked his car in the driveway and was unloading it when a neighbor whose vehicle was parked on the street tried to move it as quickly as possible.
“What happened is that my grandson didn’t move the car, he unloaded it and the man was in shock,” said the father.
“My grandson walked in when the boy came running … and [he fired]. My grandson opened the door, my son was at the door and they shot him, “Wallace said.
His father’s 29-year-old grandson was also shot in the shoulder, but Wallace and law enforcement sources said he should survive.
According to the police, eight 0.9 mm round grenades were recovered at the scene.
The dead boy’s father said he was still in awe that a family visit could go so terribly wrong.
“Did you kill my son in the driveway?” said Wallace, whose boyfriend would have celebrated her 11th birthday on Tuesday.
“He escaped right after the shooting,” Wallace told the suspect, who is still in the wind.
Wallace said he took his son’s shirt and found that the boy had been shot in the abdomen.
“I heard it and I felt the hardness when I yelled and said, ‘Call 911! Please let her come because I’m a minute from my sister’s house! ” He said.
The father said rescuers would arrive soon to try and save his son, a scene no parent should ever see.
“What hurt me was seeing those EMT guys on my son like he was dead meat, dead cow,” Wallace said, his eyes filled with tears.
“When they put him in the ambulance, they started pumping his chest, so I knew something was wrong,” he said.
“The anger I had when I was in the hospital! When I see [the baby], I see myself. Not! Not! Not! I know I’ll have to live with it for the rest of my life.
“I come home, touch his clothes. … I yell: ‘No!’, I say: ‘Oh my God!’ ”
Dad remembered his son’s last hours and said the beautiful day started with a fun trip to the beach.
“My nephew called [ed] my son’s cell phone. I say [we are] on the beach on 13th Street and he says he will bring his two daughters.
“The pandemic has hit children hard,” Wallace said.
“Yesterday, playing with his cousins, was the best time for him to play swing,” said his son’s father.
“So they want to go to my sister’s house. He says, “Dad, I’m staying an hour.”
“There was a bad atmosphere. I knew I had to go. ”
As for the killer of his son, “We need justice. I’ll go to the police to find and capture him,” Wallace said.
The father said his son was a “human person” who helped his struggling classmates with their homework.
“My son, you see it, you love it,” Wallace said.
“He’s smart … he likes math, he likes computers, he counts millions. The teachers say he’s a brilliant mathematician.”
