Antonius Wiriadjaja thought he was hearing fireworks. It would make sense — it was the day after Independence Day: July 5, 2013. The next thing the Brooklyn man knew, a stray bullet collided with his chest and he watched blood pour from the critical wound. “It missed my heart by a mere inch,” Wiriadjaja recounted during a press conference Wednesday in Albany’s Legislative Office Building. “The shooter was aiming for a pregnant woman. I didn’t know either of them.” Wiriadjaja was walking toward a subway stop at 2 p.m. about one block from his apartment when he was unexpectedly shot. A local barber heard the noise and came to his aid — holding a hand over the gushing wound to prevent him from bleeding out.
