Two young men were shot outside the Long Island home of GOP gubernatorial candidate Rep. Lee Zeldin on Sunday while his twin teenage daughters were at home, he confirmed to The Post.
“My daughters Mikayla and Arianna were doing homework on the first floor,” said Zeldin, who was not at the house in Shirley at the time.
“They heard the shots. Boom! They went upstairs and locked themselves in the bathroom.
“They’re freaked out,” the congressman said of his 16-year-old girls.
“One of the bullets was found 30 feet from where my daughters were doing their homework.”
Detectives are investigating the drive-by shooting as gang-related and were still looking for the gunman or gunmen, according to a law enforcement source.
