Two people were injured in a shooting outside of Rep. Lee Zeldin’s property in Shirley on Long Island Sunday afternoon, police said.

According to Suffolk County Police, the incident occurred at 2:20 p.m. on Saint George Drive West.

In a statement, the Republican candidate for governor said his 16-year-old twin daughters were home when the shooting took place, while he and his wife were on their way home from the Bronx Columbus Day Parade in Morris Park.

According to Zeldin, when his daughters heard the gunshots and screaming, they isolated themselves in the bathroom and called 911. 

“They acted very swiftly and smartly every step of the way and Diana and I are extremely proud of them,” he wrote in a statement.

The two individuals who were shot were laying down under Zeldin’s porch and bushes, he said. 

The individuals were transported to nearby hospitals for treatment, police said. 

"Law enforcement is currently at our house,” he said. “My entire family is at home working with the investigators and providing the security footage from our home cameras.”

Zeldin said he did not know the identities of the two people.

"My daughters are shaken, but OK. Like so many New Yorkers, crime has literally made its way to our front door,” he said. “My family is grateful to all who have reached out and we will provide another update when we can.”

The incident comes several months after Zeldin was attacked at an event in Perinton, just outside Rochester, by a man who authorities said was wielding a key chain with two pointed tips.

Zeldin was able to evade the attacker and suffered a minor scrape. The man, identified as 43-year-old David Jakubonis, was charged with attempted assault.
