Authorities say that, at the teenage victim’s wake in Amityville, one of the mourners – Tashuan Wallace – had a loaded semi-automatic weapon in his vehicle.

Not long after the service ended, he allegedly threatened to use the weapon at the nearby Home Depot parking lot, where he got into a fight.

When officers arrived, Wallace is accused of pointing the gun at the men in blue.

No one was injured and Wallace was arrested.
