The wife of jazz great Eddie Palmieri was grazed in the head by a bullet Tuesday night -- shot by an 81-year-old neighbor, police said.
Iraida Palmieri, 73, was treated at Jamaica Hospital and released with minor injuries.
Neighbors told police the alleged gun-wiedling granny, Maria Cartagena, may have thought Palmieri was making romantic advances toward her 60-year-old husband.
Palmieri told police that she was taking out garbage around 7 p.m. when the elevator stopped and Cartagena got onboard.
Law enforcement sources said Cartagena repeatedly yelled "Move over I'm gonna kill ya" before pulling a .38 caliber revolver from a fanny pack.
Cartagena faces attempted murder, assault and weapons charges, according to police.
Eddie Palmieri has won nine Grammy Awards during his career.
