One of the suspects in the deadly Queens shooting that left a mother dead and her son injured is now in custody.

And police say the incident may have been a case of mistaken identity.

Suspected gunman Malik Wallace is under arrest. Investigators say he killed Christina Coleman and wounded her teenage son in Flushing on Saturday. Coleman was shot in the head and died at the hospital. Her son was shot in the chest and remains in critical condition.

Police now believe Wallace was actually looking for the woman's older son.

The other suspect, 22-year-old Mark Coleman, was allegedly involved in another shooting earlier in the day. He remains on the loose.
