Police are questioning a man they believe fatally shot a 53-year-old woman working at a Coney Island construction site, police sources said Thursday.
The suspect was being interrogated at the 60th Precinct stationhouse in the stray bullet shooting death of Dorothy Dixon at the construction site on W. 33rd St. and Neptune Ave. about 11:40 a.m. Monday.
Dixon, who worked as a flagger, was struck by a stray when a quarrel between two men at the site looking for work escalated into gunshots.
At least one of the bullets struck Dixon in the chest. She was taken to Coney Island Hospital, but doctors couldn’t save her. A 47-year-old colleague was hit in his left leg and taken to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn in stable condition, police said.
