Gubernatorial candidate and current House member, Rep. Lee Zeldin, had some scary moments this week.
Shots were fired right outside his home.
His two teenage daughters were home alone at the time, sending a wave of fear throughout the family.
In My Neighborhood?
For the most part, Zeldin's neighborhood is very quiet.
That changed on Sunday.
A local gang war trickled into his neighborhood, with multiple shots fired not long after Zeldin and his wife left for the Columbus Day Parade.
Zeldin explained, "My 16-year-old daughters, Mikayla and Arianna, were at our house doing homework, while my wife, Diana, and I were in the car, having just departed the Bronx Columbus Day Parade in Morris Park.
"After my daughters heard the gunshots and the screaming, they ran upstairs, locked themselves in the bathroom and immediately called 911.
"They acted very swiftly and smartly every step of the way and Diana and I are extremely proud of them."
Zeldin later stated that the two injured people were "laying down under my front porch and the bushes in front of our porch."
This is now the second time Zeldin has had a scare.
He was also attacked while on stage during a campaign event.
Zeldin will surely use this incident in his campaign to prove the Hochul has lost control of the state.
