A man managed to escape with his life after gunmen jumped from a car and opened fire as he was walking in a suburban Long Island town Monday morning, a law enforcement source tells News 4.
According to the source, it appears that "multiple" shots were directed at the person walking in the area of Manhattan and Glengariff avenues in Massapequa Park.
Although the man was the “target” of the incident, some shots did strike a nearby home, the source says.
A married couple were in the house sleeping on the couch the front window at the time of the incident, but managed to dodge the flying bullets.
The homeowner tells News 4 he is sick to his stomach about what took place and fears for his family's safety. He says that surveillance video apparently shows two men wearing hoods outside firing at a barefoot man. News 4 could not immediately obtain the video.
However, pictures obtained by News 4 show a broken window and a door with at least two bullet holes.
The woman who lives at the home that riddled with bullet holes said: "We thought we were going to die. THe shots continued for what seemed like an eternity."
Her husband said the incident "was insane. The bullets came right past me."
