NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – A man shot his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend in a Brooklyn apartment Tuesday as his child watched, police said.

The shooting happened at the Gowanus Houses, near Hoyt and Butler streets, just before 4 p.m. Tuesday.

The dad shot the boyfriend in the chest, police said. He later died at NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn.

Charges were pending against the father, who was hospitalized with chest pains, late Tuesday.
