BRENTWOOD, N.Y. — An off-duty NYPD officer was grazed by a bullet as gunfire rained on the Long Island home she shares with her mother and sister, according to sources and reports.

Suffolk County Police officials said the shooting happened Monday morning at around 2:30 a.m. in Brentwood. Multiple people were inside the home, and an adult woman was grazed by a bullet.

Law enforcement sources said the woman is an NYPD officer and was off duty at the time of the shooting.

According to reports from the New York Post and New York Daily News, the shooters fired more than 30 rounds into the home on Morton St. near Washington Ave. The woman was grazed in the head, the reports said.

Officials said she’d bee treated at a local hospital and was released.

The papers also said the alleged shooters were targeting the victim’s sister’s boyfriend, who is described in the reports as an MS-13 member.

He previously lived in the home or was known to stay there, possibly along with other MS-13 members, but has since moved out, the reports said.

Suffolk County officials said the incident was not random.
