CROWN HEIGHTS - A wake was held Monday night at a Crown Heights church for the 16-year-old who was fatally shot at a party last week in Brownsville.

Iquan Williams, 16, was fatally shot in the head on Jan. 4. His younger brother says the suspect was bragging on Facebook that he was planning on shooting up the party.

The suspect, 17-year-old Jahiem Spruill, was arrested Sunday and charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon. His family claims he's innocent and his girlfriend says he never went to the party.

Brooklyn's district attorney says Spruill has been arraigned and the case is now going to a grand jury.
