The grieving mother of a Brooklyn teen murdered by a gang while he lay in bed in a case of mistaken identity, is demanding justice for her son.
Genesis Wilson, 18, was taking a break from playing video games at a friend’s house in Canarsie, when three masked men burst in and opened fire. Wilson died in hospital a day later on May 26 this year.
Police have now released surveillance footage of the men walking up the driveway to the property in the hopes someone will recognize the hooded trio. They are also offering up to $25,000 for information leading to their arrest.
Today, Wilson’s mother Paula Aumack spoke about the ‘agony and the pain’ of losing her son and ‘knowing (the killers are) just walking around freely and my kid is not here.’
‘He was my everything. We were very close. I would never, ever wish this pain on anyone. It’s heart-wrenching. Every time I think I’m not going to cry today, I get another revelation.’
The mother-of-four added that she wanted ‘justice for my son, and it’s not fair that it’s taken that long.’
Aumack said that her son was gunned down in a case of mistaken identity. Detectives also found Wilson was not the intended target.
