Man who allegedly killed mom struck her eye, fired at stranger

The man who fatally shot his mother in East Harlem this week later fired shots at a stranger as he fled the scene, according to authorities.

Musa Camara, 22, shot his mother, Jaiteh Fatuuomat, just after 9 a.m. Tuesday inside the Lehman Houses on East 108th Street near Park Avenue, according to cops.   

She was struck in the eye, police sources said. 

Camara took off after the shooting and wound up on East 110th Street, where he randomly fired three times at a 29-year-old stranger who was simply trying to enter his home, according to cops and the sources. 

Camara missed, and hit the building instead, the sources said. 

Police finally stopped him on Madison Avenue between East 108th and 109th streets. 

Once he was taken to the police station, he began acting bizarrely, removing all his clothing inside the cells, cops said.

He was initially taken to Metropolitan Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, but later charged with second-degree murder, according to police.

Fatuuomat, 39, had an order of protection against her son, and a domestic violence panic button inside her home, which she may have hit prior to being shot, cops said.
