QBP DONOVAN RICHARDS ON ARREST OF SUSPECT IN JUSTIN WALLACE’S MURDER
(June 8, 2021 at 10pm)
“Tonight, we are feeling a wide array of emotions. Today we celebrate Justin Wallace’s 11th birthday without him. He should still be here with his family, celebrating all his accomplishments, the incredible young man he had become and the bright future ahead. We will never forget Justin, and he is forever in our hearts.
“As we continue to mourn Justin, we must continue to end gun violence in Queens. We need to continue to invest in our communities and ensure our families can live safely. We owe it to Justin and everyone we senselessly lost to gun violence.
“We feel some relief to see an arrest in this case. This will not bring Justin back, but I hope this brings some closure to Justin’s family and friends. This is hopefully a step forward to justice.”
