A 27-year-old pregnant woman is clinging to life after a man shot her in the neck in a Lower East Side apartment Thursday night, cops said. 

The victim was inside the home on Madison Street, part of NYCHA’s Vladeck Houses, around 8:15 p.m., when a 28-year-old suspect — who cops say is known to her — shot her in the neck, cops said. 

She was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in critical condition.
