A married NYPD couple found a bullet in a car door after returning home with a two-year-old child in New York.

Two married NYPD detectives later shocked when they heard a loud noise while driving in Bronx with a two-year-old baby on July 4. In response, the bullet got caught in the car door, the wife told Post.

School safety assigned Stephanie Iel, 39, assumed that she and her detective husband were from fireworks when they were driving. When I heard the bang, I said I went home from a vacation outing on the Bronx River, Gun Hill Road.

"We responded easily, but we continued to drive and our ears began to ring," Eiel said.

"We checked if the baby was okay. He was fine. He started watching his cartoon again — and we continued to drive."

While working on Tuesday, she sent a photo of the damaged door to her husband, who urged her to look better, she said.

"I went downstairs with my partner, actually inspected the car panel, and saw it look like a bullet shard through it. I saw it, "said Iel. "It could have hit me or my boy because my boy was sitting right behind me. It could have ended really badly for us. I was shocked."

She said she felt "literally there is nothing we can do".

"Thanks to God. We ended up safely, but at that moment I was a little shocked ... you have a two year old kid sitting right behind you. Instead, I expect this to happen at work. We. "

NYPD's 17-year veteran, her husband was upset, she said.

"He's all over the world, working for the NYPD [in the army] and you wouldn't expect this to happen," she said. "He's grateful we're okay, but there's a lot to think about for a two-year-old kid. I, he, the bullet could have bounced off in the car. Everywhere. I was able to go. "

Eiel said she and her husband lived in Bronx for the rest of their lives, but did not expect them to be victims of crime.

"We live in the city, work in the city, love the city. This shouldn't happen when we're not working." She said.

Detective Agency President Paul Dijacomo said the incident could have been a "real tragedy" and was a special firearms prosecutor to deal with gun violence throughout the city. Prompted the establishment.

"This incident may have been a real tragedy. We had a mother and father, a child, and a two-year-old child who could die from gun violence." He said. "It's possible for anyone, anywhere. That's why we're calling on the governor to appoint a special firearms prosecutor to deal with gun violence in New York City and New York State. This is a trendy level. More coordinated.

He said all gun cases should go to one office for "accurate prosecution of gun violence."

"It's different in every district, as it is now," said the union boss. "People's lives and the safety of New York City detectives depend on it."
