One of the victims of a shooting in South Ozone Park early on August 11 is being loaded into an ambulance.

A single bullet struck and injured a mother and her son during an apparent dispute with a third individual inside a home in South Ozone Park early on Thursday morning, police sources said.

The shooting took place at about 2:37 a.m. on August 11 inside the residence on 113th Street near 109th Avenue.

According to authorities, a 49-year-old woman was awoken from her sleep by a verbal argument outside her bedroom between her 24-year-old son and the shooter, who is known to them.

When she stepped outside her bedroom, police said, the gunman opened fire on her son, striking him in the forearm; the same bullet wound up grazing the mother’s head. The suspect then fled the scene in an unknown direction.

Officers from the 106th Precinct and EMS units responded to the incident. Both the mother and her son were taken to Jamaica Hospital and were listed in stable condition with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

A source familiar with the investigation said the son is cooperating with detectives in helping them track down the shooter.

The investigation is ongoing.
