Kenneth Meeks, 45, was charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment in the shooting.
Meeks, a guard at the Rugged Sole store on Utica Avenue in Crown Heights, allegedly got into a fight with another man in the store, 23-year-old Gerald Spears. Spears later returned to the store with a gun and shot at Meeks, who in turn fired his own weapon.
The 34-year-old victim was grazed in the arm and the 12-year-old was shot in the leg, police said. They are listed in stable condition at Kings County Hospital.
Police are still looking for Spears, described as about 5 feet 5 inches and 180 pounds, with short black hair.
