    Gunfire erupted outside a baby shower for the wife of an actor on "The Wire" -- killing one teen and wounded two others in a hail of nearly 50 bullets, cops said. 

    The wife of actor Jamie Hector, who played drug lord Marlo Stanfield on the popular HBO crime series, was inside the Brooklyn party when gunfire erupted in East Flatbush, the New York Daily News reported.  And in a move that would have made Marlo proud, one of the gunmen followed his victim to the hospital and fired another shot at him to try and finish him off.

    "What a gun battle," a police source told the Daily News. "They have been watching too much TV."

    Cops found at least 46 shell casings in a half-block radius at E. 93rd St. and Avenue B.
