A woman trying to climb into a Bronx apartment window Sunday fell from the fire escape and was critically injured — and hours later, a man was shot outside the same building, cops said.
The female victim was trying to get into a man’s apartment on Marion Ave. at E. 196th St. in Fordham Heights about 3:15 p.m., after what police sources described as a drug deal gone wrong. A witness who called 911 reported that it appeared the woman was pushed out a window; police determined she fell backwards off the fire escape and plunged to the pavement below, cops said. Medics took the woman, 35, to St. Barnabas Hospital in critical condition.
Police were questioning a man living inside the apartment to help determine the circumstances surrounding the fall. At about 10 p.m., police returned to the scene to find a man shot and critically wounded outside the apartment.
