A man claims he was hit in the shoulder and then his parents fatally shot by a gunman that opened fire on all three inside their Queens house Friday morning.

Neighbors are shocked by the crime tape still draped outside their neighbors' home.

It's blocking off the scene where a husband and wife were shot to death in their second floor bedroom.

"I can't see them having an enemy at all. They were the sweetest people you could ever meet," said Tricia Ray, the victims' neighbor.

Sweet, hardworking Sugrim and Rosie Jaggernauth lived in the home on Grayson Street in St. Albans, Queens for more than two decades.

It's where they raised their two sons.

It was one of their boys, 23-year-old Shane, who made the 911 call.

He told police he had just come home from walking his dog around 4 a.m. Friday, when a man pushed his way in, shot him in the shoulder, then went upstairs and shot both of his parents in the head.

"Shocking, still is shocking. It's just unbelievable, I can't believe it," said Arlene DeSouza, the victims' neighbor.

Unbelievable violence and unthinkable to Arlene that the man she walked to the bus stop with just the other day, was taken from his home, along with his wife in body bags.

"The block is truly going to miss them. It's affecting everyone. It's sad that it happened. Everybody just hopes they find out who did it and they found out who did it really soon," Ray said.

The son was rushed to the Jamaica Medical Center, where he was being treated.

His Toyota SUV was missing from the scene.

No arrests were immediately made.
