The violence erupted at about 12:30 p.m. at the nine-story Johnson Houses residential complex in the New York City Metropolitan Planning Association, at 165 East 112th Street in East Harlem, when a gunman shot his 40-year-old girlfriend behind the ear and in the thigh, and her 19-year-old son in the torso and arm, according to sources.
