A man wounded in a shooting last year — and out on bail in connection to the same case — was fatally gunned down near Yankee Stadium last week, cops said Tuesday.
Malik Bright, 22, was shot twice in the back of the head as he walked past the entrance of Mullaly Park at East 164th Street and River Avenue — steps from the stadium — around 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, authorities said.
He was taken to Lincoln Medical Center, where he succumbed to his injuries two days later.
It was unclear Tuesday whether he was the intended target.
No arrests had been made by Tuesday morning.
Bright, of Brooklyn, was previously hurt in a Sept. 7 shooting that claimed the life of 27-year-old Tysheem Ceruti, authorities said.
The gunfire broke out around 12:30 a.m. on Putnam Avenue near Howard Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, cops said.
Ceruti was blasted in the groin, arm and chest, and taken to the Kings County Hospital Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Bright was shot in the elbow and leg, and was taken to Interfaith Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.
Three months later, on Jan. 6, Bright was charged with criminal possession of a loaded firearm and reckless endangerment in connection to the incident, cops said.
His exact role in the case was unclear.
He was out on bail in connection to those charges, the Brooklyn DA’s office said. The exact monetary amount was unclear.
Nicholas Seabrook, 24, was arrested on Jan. 17 and charged with murder and criminal possession of a loaded firearm in connection to the slaying of Ceruti, cops said.
