The ex-boyfriend of the 20-year-old woman who was fatally shot while walking her 3-month-old infant in a stroller on the Upper East Side has been taken into custody, according to police sources.

The 24-year-old man, who police have been hunting down as a person of interest in the slaying of Azsia Johnson, was taken to Manhattan’s 19 Precinct on Friday night, sources said.

No charges have been announced.

The ex-boyfriend was on law enforcement’s radar over allegations that he abused and “stalked” Johnson in the past, sources and relatives have said.

Johnson was on her way to meet her ex when shot in the head at point-blank range Wednesday near Lexington Avenue and East 95th Street, law enforcement sources have said.
