The FBI is offering up to a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Antoine Burroughs who has been charged in a deadly 2009 Ozone Park home invasion.


The FBI is offering a reward for a man who has been charged with murdering the son of a Queens pizza shop owner after he tried to defend his father during a 2009 home invasion.

Antoine Burroughs, also known as “Butter” or “Youngblood,” along with an accomplice, Leon Whitfield, is accused of attempting to rob Bartolomeo Antoniello at his Ozone Park residence in September 2009, according to officials.

The pair was allegedly targeting any cash he had on hand from his pizza shop, Antoniello’s. His son, 29-year-old Gerardo Antoniello tried to protect his father, and was fatally shot in the head during the struggle, officials said.

Burroughs, who was indicted in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York, on March 13, is charged with murder, robbery conspiracy, attempted robbery and discharging a firearm, according to the FBI. An arrest warrant for Burroughs was issued the same day. Whitfield was arrested on March 18.

The FBI is now offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of Burroughs.

He is described as 25 years old, 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighs about 180 to 190 pounds and has a prominent mole on his right cheek. Burroughs was last known to be in Harlem, and is believed to have family and friends in Harlem and the Bronx. He should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Burroughs can contact the FBI at 212-384-1000.
