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.

    Nice. It will never get through to some people that gun violence brings one of three things: jail or death or both. Apparently two of the three didn’t seem to be enough for this imbecile
