A Brooklyn gang member has been charged with shooting a 15-year-old boy outside a clothing store, authorities said Friday.

Marlon Johnson, 19, who runs with the Wave Gang, was charged with attempted murder and held in lieu of $75,000 bail.

He is accused of shooting and wounding Leslie Smalls outside Jimmy Jazz clothing store in Brownsville Sunday. The victim was one of 25 people shot in less than 48 hours last weekend.

Police sources said Leslie, who has no criminal record, was hanging out with a group of friends and took cover inside the store when Johnson showed up with a gun.

They stepped back outside when they thought Johnson had left, but he was nearby and opened fire, sources said. He was likely aiming for someone else in the group, sources said.

Someone in the group identified Johnson as the shooter, court papers say.

Johnson had been arrested three weeks ago after accidentally shooting himself in the leg on May 12 in East New York. In that case, he was hit with reckless endangerment and gun possession charges and released on $3,500 bail, records show.
