The father and son – in traditional Jewish costume – were returning a shopping trolley outside the Kosher Island market in the Meiers Corners neighborhood when someone shot at them from a passing black sports car around 4:20pm on Sunday, police said the filming.

The father and son were wearing traditional Jewish robes and were returning a shopping cart outside the market when someone fired BB bullets at them from a passing sports car.

The boy visibly crouched and turned to face his father, who tended to him after the blow, according to video released by the Shmira Public Safety Patrol.

The father was hit in the chest and the boy’s ear was scraped. Both were treated with minor injuries, police said.

The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the incident, the department confirmed Monday.
