Jewish Man and 7-Year-Old Son Shot With BB Gun in NY

(Algemeiner) A Jewish man and his son were shot with BB guns over the weekend while standing outside a kosher supermarket in Staten Island.

Two suspects driving a black Ford Mustang grazed the son, who is 7-years-old, on the ear and impacted the father in the chest. According to CBS New York, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) said its investigators are still determining whether the assailants targeted the man and his son, who were wearing yarmulkes during the attack, because they are Jewish.

“The Staten Island Jewish community is very disturbed by this incident. Thank God the victims weren’t severely injured and are OK,” Ari Weiss of Staten Island Shomrim told CBS. “We at the Staten Island Shomrim are working closely with NYPD’s 121 & Hate Crimes detectives to identify and apprehend those responsible for these acts. We can all be very confident this will be resolved quickly.”
