    Police have seized an arsenal of weapons from a Queens home while investigating a suspect who allegedly fired gunshots into the air last Sunday.

    Firearms, machetes, knives, stun guns and brass knuckles were recovered Friday from the Astoria home of Michael Millazzo, 53, authorities said. Police had a warrant to search Millazzo's home while investigating reports of gunfire in front of 20-11 Shore Blvd. in Ditmars-Steinway Aug. 26.

    Millazzo was charged with several counts of criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment in connection with the Aug. 26 incident.

    He was additionally charged with 53 counts of varying degrees of criminal possession of a weapon after cops discovered his weapons cache.

    It wasn't immediately clear if Millazzo had an attorney.
