Elmont Murder Suspect Convicted

A Queens man was convicted Monday of shooting a 29-year-old man to death and seriously injuring a 51-year-old grandmother also hit by the gunfire in Elmont a year and ½ ago.

A Nassau County jury found Wilfred Labossiere guilty of second-degree murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

Prosecutors said the 33-year-old Far Rockaway man was arrested hours after he fatally shot Christopher Mullings of Roosevelt during a family feud over Labossiere’s 3-year-old son on Nov. 26, 2012.

Labossiere drove his son’s grandmother to the hospital before he fled the scene, police said at the time.

Labossiere faces up to 25 years to life in prison when he is sentenced May 1 before Judge Philip Grella.
