BLM & AOC Silent after 10-Year-Old Boy Shot Dead in New York City
Tragic fatal shooting of Justin Wallace doesn't advance radical Marxist agenda
Black Lives Matter and radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) have been silent in the wake of a 10-year-old boy being shot and killed in New York City over the weekend.
On Saturday, Queens came to a standstill after Justin Wallace was shot dead just three days away from his 11th birthday.
According to police, Wallace was tragically killed when a gunman opened fire at his aunt’s home in Far Rockaway around 9:30 p.m.
One of the gunman's shots struck the young boy in the chest, the New York Post reported.
The child was mortally wounded from the shooting and passed away from his injuries at a nearby hospital.
Police are reportedly investigating a neighbor over a driveway dispute as a potential motive.
Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY) whose district includes much of Queens, published a tweet on Monday – two days after the shooting – saying that he would be meeting with Wallace's family.
"Justin Wallace was a [10 year] old from the Rockaways who was taken from his family entirely too soon from gun violence," Meeks wrote.
"I'll be meeting with his family to share my deepest condolences."
"Taking action is an imperative, and I implore my colleagues on the local level to evaluate how we can curb such violence in our communities, and I will continue to push for meaningful gun reforms on the federal level," he added in a follow-up tweet.

Ocasio-Cortez, whose district includes parts of Queens, has been silent since the attack.
She has not posted on social media nor did she respond to media requests for comment.
Black Lives Matter has also been silent and failed to comment on the child's death.
Wallace, a sixth-grader, was three days away from his 11th birthday before he was killed by the gunman, who is still at large.
The math-loving student was one of four people killed in 16 shootings across New York City this weekend.
His father, Albert Wallace, 57, was in the basement of the home when he heard gunshots ring out.
When he investigated where the shots came from, he found his son lying in a pool of blood, unmoving and unresponsive.
"I said, ‘Why is my son laying right here?’" he told the Post.
"And when I saw the pile of blood, I said ‘Justin, Justin, are you OK, son? You’re not responding, You’re not responding.'"
NYPD released the video of the shooting to the public, asking anyone with information on the perpetrator to reach out to authorities.
