Police arrested an 18-year-old man in the shootings of two kids who got caught in the crossfire in Brooklyn.

Police say Sincere Kingsberry was responsible for the shootings of 10- and 12-year-old boys who were shot in the Brownsville section.

The 12-year-old, Jaaquan Cross, cheated death Monday when he was caught in a hail of bullets on his very own block.

He says he looked his would-be killer in the eye before diving behind a parked car. He sustained a wound to the wrist. His 10-year-old friend, Tyrese Bollers, was hit in the leg.

Neighbors rushed to help the two boys and call 911. One witness said the gunman seemed like a kid himself and still in his teenage years.

Police say Kingsberry stowed away his silver handgun, got back onto his bike and pedaled away. Detectives say he was aiming for someone else, and the two boys got caught in the crossfire.

Kingsberry is charged with two counts of attempted murder, assault, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal use of a firearm.
