RUSSIAN ROULETTE EYED IN WEST SIDE SHOOTING

A lower West Side man suffered a gunshot wound to the jaw late Monday night in what may have been a game of Russian roulette on Maryland Street, authorities said.

Joseph A. Alamo, 27, of Efner Street was listed in serious condition today in Erie County Medical Center's intensive care unit, hospital officials said.

Though circumstances were unclear on how he was shot, the wounding occurred at 11:15 p.m., when the gun, containing one bullet, was pulled away from someone's head and it discharged, hitting Alamo's jaw, police said.
