An off-duty NYPD cop was grazed in the head by a bullet Monday when her Long Island home was sprayed with more than 30 rounds — apparently intended for her sister’s alleged gangbanging boyfriend, police and sources said.

Nathaly Gomez Iglesias, who works out of the 103rd Precinct in Jamaica, Queens, lives with her sister and mother in the Brentwood home, which the boyfriend has been known to stay at and may have been previously used by members of the notorious MS-13 street gang, according to cops and sources

The shot cop, reached by The Post by phone from inside her bullet-riddled home, declined comment Monday.

“I don’t want to talk,” she said.

Gomez Iglesias joined the NYPD in 2019, city payroll records show.

“Shots were fired into a home on Morton Street at approximately 2:30 a.m.,” Suffolk County police said in a statement. “Multiple people were inside the home at the time, and an adult female was grazed by a bullet. The woman was treated at a local hospital and released.”

“The investigation has revealed the incident was not random,” cops added.

The NYPD bars cops from associating with gang members or criminals.

The department referred questions on the shooting to Suffolk police.
