A shooting that critically wounded a man Monday may have stemmed from a workplace dispute at a Bronx public housing complex, police said.

Gunfire broke out around 2:15 p.m. on Jan. 6 on the third floor of a New York City Housing Authority building on Bailey Avenue, police said. It’s near the Jerome Park Reservoir in the Kingsbridge area.

A 43-year-old man was shot three times and taken to a hospital in critical condition, police said. The suspect fled in a car.

Both are NYCHA employees, said City Councilman Fernando Cabrera, whose district encompasses the complex.

“I’m thankful that no tenants were harmed,” Cabrera said in a statement.

Investigators are still piecing together what happened.

The housing authority is still gathering information and hasn’t immediately made a statement.
