A grocery store employee was killed and two others were wounded in a shooting at a Stop & Shop on New York’s Long Island Tuesday morning, police said. The two people injured were being treated at local hospitals, Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder said.
Police are looking for a person of interest in the shooting, identified as Gabriel DeWitt Wilson. He was described as a 31-year-old Black man who is 6 feet, 2 inches tall. Police weren’t sure if the man was a current or past employee of the store in West Hempstead.
Ryder said the man was wearing a black baseball hat and a black sweatshirt and he was last seen heading west on the Hempstead Turnpike.
The Nassau County Police Department released a photo of Wilson.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
