A Copiague man answering a knock at his front door was shot through the door early Sunday morning in what Suffolk County police said was a targeted attack.

Police said Aaron Goodman, 30, heard a knock at the door of his home on Dixon Avenue just after midnight on Sunday.

As Goodman opened the door, a man fired multiple shots at him, Det. Sgt. James Murphy said. The shots went through the door, which had a glass window, Murphy said.

One of the shots hit Goodman in the abdomen, according to police.

Murphy said the shooting was not a random act, although Goodman reported not knowing the shooter.

Goodman was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip for treatment.

Police ask anyone with information about this case to contact either the First Squad at 631-854-8152 or Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS.
