HARLEM — A man who was shot in the neck collapsed and died on a Harlem street corner after staggering two blocks from his 123rd Street home, cops said.
A witness saw Adjowah Beverly, 42, stumbling through the streets and went to a nearby police station to alert cops. By the time officers arrived at St. Nicholas Avenue and 123rd Street at 8:24 p.m., Beverly lay motionless on the corner, an NYPD spokesman said.
He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Officers tracked Beverly's trail of blood back to his 123rd Street apartment, where they found drug paraphernalia, the police spokesman said.
Beverly was convicted for fatally shooting a woman in her head in 1991, authorities said. During parole hearings, Beverly said the shooting was drug-related and accidental, prison records show.
He was released on parole in 2010, but he was taken into custody again because of a violation, according to a state Department of Corrections spokeswoman said. He was freed again in March 2011, prison records show.
Beverly was also arrested in 2012, but the circumstances weren't clear, the Bronx District Attorney's office said.
His killer was not immediately arrested, police said.
