By Matis Glenn

A visibly Jewish father and son were shot from a car with a BB gun in Staten Island, according to Shomrim.

The 8 year old boy and his father, 32, were standing outside Kosher Island supermarket, at 2212 Victory Boulevard in the Meiers Corners area, on Sunday afternoon at around 4:30PM, when a black Mustang with South Carolina plates drove up and  fired multiple shots, striking both father and son.

Shomrim gathered surveillance footage from the area and are working with NYPD to investigate.  

The child sustained minor injuries, and the father did not require medical attention. The NYPD is treating the incident as a hate crime, in line with many such incidents in recent months, involving BB and gel gun shootings of visibly Jewish people.
