An uncle and nephew were charged on Tuesday for a string of armed robberies throughout Queens.
Scott Brack and Elgin Brack allegedly started their robbery spree on Monday at a Duane Reade where a cashier was shot in the head and hand.
Elgin, 22 of Brooklyn, is believed to be the shooter, Brooklyn Federal prosecutors said on Tuesday.

The pair fled in a silver Honda and hit three other locations, prosecutors said.
Armed with a gun, the thieves allegedly stole $300 from a 7-Eleven on Northern Boulevard, $800 from a Rite Aide on 30th Avenue and $100 from a Rite Aide on Merrick Boulevard. The suspect fled in a silver Honda, prosecutors said.
Scott, 50 of the Bronx and Elgin face up to seven year in prison if convicted for robbing the four convenient stores, prosecutors said.
Elgin was also charged with brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence and discharging a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.
