2 Shot Outside Zeldin’s Shirley Home


Two people were shot Sunday outside the Shirley home of U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin, the Republican gubernatorial candidate trying to unseat Gov. Kathy Hochul, according to police and the congressman’s campaign.

Three teenagers were walking on Saint George Drive West when an unknown assailant fired shots at the trio from the window of a passing dark-colored vehicle outside of Zeldin‘s home on Saint George Drive West at 2:20 p.m., officials said. The victims, identified only as 17-year-old Mastic Beach residents, were taken to local hospitals for treatment of their injuries. The congressman’s 16-year-old daughters Mikayla and Arianna were at home doing homework at the time while Zeldin and his wife Diana had just left the Bronx Columbus Day Parade in Morris Park, the congressman said.
