NYC: Bronx woman shot dead through apartment door peephole, son on trial for murder may have been intended target

A Bronx mother of two was shot dead through her apartment door peephole by a gangbanger who may have been targeting her son, who is on trial for murder, police sources said Sunday.

Wendy Martinez, 45, looked through the peephole of her Concourse Village apartment when the doorbell rang and was blasted in the face about 9:40 p.m. on Saturday, police said.

She died at the scene. Police led a sobbing young man from the Grand Concourse building near E. 156th St. moments after the shooting.

Sources say the gunman was actually after Martinez’s son, Brian Solano, for allegedly killing the brother of a high-ranking Trinitarios gang member four years earlier. But Martinez got caught in the crossfire.
