Police on Saturday arrested the suspect they believe is responsible for shooting an 11-year-old Bronx boy through the door of his family's apartment Thursday night.

Kijana Jenkins, 17, is charged with criminal possession of a weapon, assault, and reckless endangerment.

Police officials say he made statements incriminating himself.

Jenkins is one of two people seen in surveillance video contained in the above clip.

Sources say the boy was playing video games in his apartment on Creston Avenue in Fordham Thursday night when he heard the doorbell ring.

When he went to answer it, he was shot through the door.

The boy does not appear to have been the intended target.

He was taken to Jacobi Hospital, where he is listed in serious condition.
