Cops bust teens for gang-related killing of 15-year-old in Queens

Cops on Saturday nabbed two teens for the gang-related slaying of a teenager in their Queens neighborhood, police sources said.

Petiri Edmond, 17, and Atekel Donaldson, 19, were arrested around 11 p.m. Saturday and charged with the murder of 15-year-old Yussef Soliman, cops said.

Soliman was blasted in his stomach and hand on Beach Channel Drive near Beach 47th St. eight blocks from his home in the Edgemere section of Far Rockaway just after 4 p.m. Thursday, according to police.

Medics rushed the teen, whose name was released early Sunday, to Long Island Jewish Northwell Children’s Center, where he died.

It was not immediately clear if one or both of the suspects fired at Soliman.
