A 25-year-old was shot last night while walking on East 91st Street, near Third Avenue. The gunman, who jumped out of his car at 11:30 pm and fired two bullets, one into her neck, was the young woman's boyfriend. "I heard the gunshots and it startled me," a bystander told the New York Post. "I was afraid to come outside. After 10 minutes, I heard the sirens and came outside." According to a doorman who witnessed the shooting, the jilted lover jumped back into his car and sped off. But he was cuffed by police shortly after and taken in for questioning. Meanwhile, his girlfriend rode to New York Hospital, where cops say her injuries are not considered life-threatening.
