Manhattan

The apparent boyfriend of a pregnant woman who was shot in the neck in her Lower East Side apartment was apprehended by authorities in New Jersey Friday morning, according to police sources.

The expecting mother, 27, was critically injured when she was shot Thursday around 8:20 p.m. in her Lower East Side apartment on Madison Street, near Jackson Street, police sources said.

The woman’s 8-year-old son was in the home when it happened, according to police. He was also taken to the hospital for an evaluation, but had no signs of physical injuries.

Early Friday, authorities said they were looking for a 28-year-old man who had a domestic relationship with the woman.

Cops had responded to the same residence three times in the past for domestic incidents between the couple but no charges were ever pressed, according to police sources.

The man was later apprehended in New Jersey, police sources said.

The suspect has prior arrests, including one for selling a loaded weapon, according to law enforcement sources.

If you or someone you know is a survivor of domestic violence, resources and help are available.
