QUEENS — Two teens were arrested after getting caught on police surveillance video executing another teen in the Jamaica Houses, cops said.

NYPD officers monitoring surveillance cameras saw two men chasing another man, Daryl Adams, 18, through the houses. Adams collapses, and as the two teens approach, one of them pulls a gun and fires.

Within seconds, undercover cops move in and arrest the pair, who were identified by police as Alexander Burgess, 16, and Sean Barnhill, 19.  Both were charged with murder and weapons possession charges, and were identified as suspects in separate shootings last week.

The ensuing investigation led investigators to get a search warrant for a home at 142-19 Hook Creek Blvd, police said.  There, Emergency Services Unit cops arrested 11 people between the ages of 14 and 20, and confiscate five firearms, police said. All 11 were hit with weapons possession charges, police said.

Also, cops said, Burgess and Barnhill have been named as suspects in two February shootings.
Burgess was charged with Dontaye Goines, 17, who was arrested in the Hook Creek Blvd. raid, with attempted murder, assault and weapons charges for allegedly shooting a 22-year-old man on Feb. 25 at Sutphin Boulevard and 121 Avenue, police said. That man was walking home when he was shot in the leg and abdomen, police said.  He was taken to Jamaica Hospital in critical but stable condition.

Barnhill and Romain Brady, 17, who was also arrested in the raid, were charged with attempted murder, robbery and weapons charges for allegedly shooting a 23-year-old man on March 1 near 253 Street and Francis Lewis Boulevard. The wounded man was taken to an area hospital in stable condition, police said.
