Queens teen kills cousin while toying with gun

Enlarge this image

NEW YORK -- Prosecutors say a Queens teenager shot and killed his cousin while showing off a gun.
Felix Cruz was awaiting arraignment Thursday on charges including manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide. Prosecutors did not know whether he had a lawyer, and a message left at an apparent telephone number for his Far Rockaway home wasn't immediately returned.
The Queens district attorney's office says the 18-year-old knew the gun was loaded when he playfully pointed it at cousin Veronica Cruz Wednesday evening. Prosecutors say he pulled the trigger once, then again after the gun didn't fire. The second time, the cousin was shot in the face.
The cousin was visiting for the summer from Clinton, Mass., about 45 miles from Boston. She also was 18.
