Two individuals were shot outside of Republican New York Rep. Lee Zeldin’s Long Island home Sunday while his twin daughters were home.

Zeldin’s 16-year-old daughters, Mikayla and Arianna, heard gunshots and screaming outside of the house and immediately locked themselves in the upstairs bathroom and called 911, the representative said in a statement obtained by the Daily Caller. The incident occurred at 2:18 p.m. while Zeldin and his wife, Diana, were in the car after having attended the Bronx Columbus Day Parade.

“They acted very swiftly and smartly every step of the way and Diana and I are extremely proud of them,” Zeldin said in the statement.
