New York – Two people were shot outside of GOP Congressman Lee Zeldin’s Long Island home on Sunday afternoon.
Republican Lee Zeldin is currently running against Democrat Governor Kathy Hochul in New York’s gubernatorial race.
Rep. Zeldin said one of the bullets landed near his teenage daughters.
“Thank you to all who reached out with your concern regarding the 2 people shot this afternoon outside my home. Mikayla and Arianna were at the kitchen table doing homework. One of the bullets landed just 30 feet from them. They acted very swiftly and smartly in response.” Zeldin said.
“After my daughters heard the gunshots and the screaming, they ran upstairs, locked themselves in the bathroom and immediately dialed 911. They acted very swiftly and smartly every step of the way and Diana and I are extremely proud of them,” Zeldin added.
Zeldin said the two shooting victims were laying down on his front porch!
“The two individuals who were shot were laying down under my front porch and the bushes in front of our porch. My understanding is that they have been transported to area hospitals. I do not know their identities,” he said.
Zeldin continued, “Like so many New Yorkers, crime has literally made its way to our front door.”
