From the NY Daily News:

The grieving family of a 13-year-old Queens boy shot to death outside a car wash pleaded for witnesses to come forward as investigators took a suspect into custody, police sources said Sunday.

“Do the right thing!” begged Donna Greaves, whose son, Kevin Miller, was gunned down Friday in Cambria Heights. “And let someone know who’s responsible.”

Investigators have a 16-year-old “person of interest” at the 105th Precinct in Queens Village who was being questioned and will be part of witness lineup, the police sources said.

The unidentified suspect has not yet been charged with a crime, sources said.

Miller, a freshman at Humanities and the Arts Magnet High School, was shot in the head about 3 p.m. after he and a friend stumbled upon a fight near Campus Magnet High School Linden and Springfield Blvds.

“He was an innocent bystander, in the wrong place at the wrong time,” said Greaves, 35, fighting back tears.

Heartbroken relatives quickly gathered at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, where Miller was pronounced dead.

“As soon as I saw him, I walked out of the room and cried in my mother’s arms,” said cousin Steven King, 14, who grew up in the same house with Miller.

Mayor Bloomberg blasted the shooting today and called for stricter gun laws.

“I don’t know when we’re going just as a society finally say enough is enough,” said Bloomberg. “Here’s another young kid with a gun and an innocent 13 year old is dead. I mean, what kind of a society do we have?”
