Two teenagers were hurt Wednesday night when shots were fired through the side of a Wyandanch home, Suffolk County police said.

Officers from the First Precinct responded to reports of shots fired shortly after 11 p.m., police said.

The reports came from calls to 911 and from ShotSpotter, technology that relies on sound equipment to locate the origin of gunfire, police said.

Police said officers determined that “multiple shots” were fired through the side of the home on Commonwealth Drive.

A 19-year-old woman was struck once in the chest and an 18-year-old man was hit once in the leg, police said.

Police described both wounds as superficial and not life-threatening.

The victims were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip for treatment, police said.

Tonya Cannon, who said she is the mother of the 19-year-old, told News 12 Long Island that her daughter had just arrived at the house for a party when the shooting started.

“My daughter was there only 10 minutes and someone just came and shot up the house,” Cannon said.

Detectives asked anyone with information on the shooting to call the First Squad at 631-854-8152, or Crime Stoppers at 800-220-8477.
