A man is accused of shooting and wounding his parents in their Long Island mansion on Christmas morning, cops said Sunday.

The 29-year-old son, Dino Tomassetti, allegedly shot his 64-year-old mom Vincenza in the head and his 65-year-old dad Rocco in the back at their home on Seawane Drive in Hewlett Harbor around 10:10 a.m. Saturday, Nassau County police said.

Both victims survived and were conscious and alert as medics took them to a hospital, cops said.

Rocco Tomassetti is the owner of the Brooklyn-based cement and concrete company Empire Transit Mix Inc., records show.

After the shooting, the younger Tomassetti was spotted driving in Mahwah, N.J., by New York state troopers, officials said. The troopers then alerted the Mahwah Police Department, which shut down New Jersey’s southbound Route 17.

Tomassetti was arrested without a struggle, cops said.

He remains locked up in the Bergen County Jail on a fugitive from justice warrant.

On Sunday, neighbors living near the nearly 9,000 square foot Hewlett Harbor home were flabbergasted at the violence.

“Kind of crazy, because this is a very quiet neighborhood, kind of like a safe neighborhood,” said Ariella Bronfman. “Usually nothing like this happens here.”

The son is a Brooklyn based bodybuilder and personal trainer at Retro Fitness locations in Forest Hills and Glendale, Queens, according to his Instagram account. The muscleman uses his social media bio to show off his weight lifting skills, boasting he can deadlift up to 725 pounds.
