Elderly Woman Shot In Leg In Upper Manhattan

An 83-year-old woman was hospitalized Friday after being shot in the leg in Manhattan.

Officials said the woman was sitting on a park bench on Amsterdam Avenue in Harlem Friday morning when she was hit by a stray bullet.

Investigators said a retired police officer and another man were fighting about the officer's daughter when the officer's gun went off.

"I was in the shower so all I heard was a sound, a loud pop," said one witness.

"Everybody came after the bang came," said another. "Police, ambulance, everybody."

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the woman is said to be in good condition.
