Man Shoots 2, Killing 1, in Long Island Office Building Near Mall
A man described as a disgruntled business associate walked into an office of a company that makes light fixtures and shot two people, killing one, before fleeing, prompting a lockdown of a nearby shopping mall Wednesday, authorities said.
Police were looking for Sang Ho Kim, 64, in connection with the shooting.
Officials said the gunman entered the office of the SavEnergy light fixture company on South Street, near the Roosevelt Field Mall in East Garden City, shortly after 10 a.m. and opened fire.
He fled in a white Honda SUV, with a license plate number FMA 3648, after shooting the two victims. The condition of the surviving victim wasn’t immediately clear.
Police said there was nothing to suggest the suspect was on a random shooting rampage. The attack appeared to be targeted to a specific person in the office “over a bad business deal,” Nassau County Police Chief Steven Skrynecki said.
