A man watching television in his East Side living room yesterday afternoon was critically injured in the head by a gunshot that penetrated an outside wall.
Yusuf Mohamed, 32, of 3208 Sterling Lane, was in critical, life-threatening condition at Grant Medical Center last night.
The bullet passed through the exterior wall of Mohamed’s first floor apartment and struck him around 2:23 p.m., police said.
It is believed that the gunshot was fired out in the parking lot area of the Sterling Court Apartments located off Sixth Avenue near Krumm Park.
Homicide detectives say they don’t know if Mohamed was the intended target of the shooting or if he was the unfortunate victim of stray gunfire.
No arrests have been made.
