Jovan Young, 29, was charged with murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the horrifying weekend shooting, police said.

Law enforcement sources said that cops had recovered a gun tied to the individual.

Chilling surveillance video showed the gunman walking on the sidewalk in front of a home on Beach 45th­ Street around 9:30 p.m. Saturday night, reaching his arm through its iron railing — and pumping a barrage of bullets at the house.

Fifth-grader Justin Wallace took a bullet to the abdomen, and his 29-year-old uncle suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the shoulder.

The slain boy’s father, Albert Wallace, told The Post on Sunday that the shooting stemmed from a long-simmering dispute between his relatives and their neighbors over a shared driveway.
