According to Nassau County police, the incident happened Sunday night on Renfrew Avenue in Elmont.
A 51-year-old woman, 52-year-old man and an 11-year-old boy heard what sounded like gunshots outside the front of their residence.
Further investigation revealed a bullet hole was present in a bedroom window.
The bullet created an additional hole through the bedroom wall and ended up going into an adjacent closet, police said.
No one was injured.
Investigators believe a dark or black colored SUV, possibly a Jeep Cherokee was involved, as it was seen fleeing the area immediately following the gunshots.
It is believed to have been a random act and the occupants of the home were not targeted, according to police.
Detectives request anyone with information regarding this incident to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
