A Brooklyn woman shot her ex-boyfriend in the neck Saturday when he tried to kick his way into her apartment, police sources said.
The 30-year-old man, identified by sources as Marlon Womcak, stormed into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment building on Bristol St. near Blake Ave. in Brownsville at 6:13 p.m., cops said.
When Womack kicked open her door, he found the 52-year-old woman, who sources identified as Tonya Wooten, standing at the threshold with a handgun, police sources said.
Wooten pulled the trigger and hit Womack once in the neck, according to sources. Medics rushed him to Brookdale Hospital where he is in stable condition, police said.
Cops found Wooten’s .40 caliber handgun at the scene. She recently moved to the city from North Carolina. While the weapon was legal there, she did not have a New York permit yet, police sources said.
Womack allegedly has an extensive criminal history.
Wooten was taken into custody and charges were pending early Sunday, cops said.
