NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say a woman walking up the stairs in a Brooklyn building escaped being shot when a man’s gun jammed.

The 30-year-old woman told police she was in the building around 4 p.m. Saturday when a man she didn’t know came up from behind and tried to shoot her. She told authorities the gun jammed, and she went into an apartment and locked the door.

She said the man fired several shots into the door before fleeing. There were no injuries, and police are looking for the man.
