FBI offers $10,000 rewared in search for Queens murder suspect

The FBI is offering a reward in the search for a suspected murderer who allegedly killed a man in Queens five years ago.

Police are searching for Antoine D. Burroughs, who is accused of shooting and killing 29-year-old Gerardo Antoniello during a robbery in Ozone Park in 2009.

An alleged accomplice of Burroughs, Leon Whitfield, was arrested in March.

Now, federal agents are offering $10,000 for information leading to Burroughs' arrest.

Burroughs, a.k.a. Butter or Youngblood, is 25 years old, 6-foot-1 and weighs approximately 180 to 190 pounds. He has a prominent mole on his right cheek and was last known to be in Harlem. He is believed to have family and friends in Harlem and the Bronx.

Police say Burroughs and Whitfield attempted to rob an individual named Bartolomeo Antoniello at his home in Queens, targeting the cash proceeds of Antoniello's pizza shop.

Antoniello's son, the victim, was home at the time and attempted to protect his father.

During the struggle, Gerardo Antoniello was shot in the head and later died of his injuries. He was 29 years old.

Burroughs is charged with murder, robbery conspiracy, attempted robbery and discharging a firearm.

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Burroughs is urged to contact law enforcement immediately. The FBI can be reached 24 hours a day at 212-384-1000.

Burroughs should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.
