Garden City Shooting — Shooter Revealed
Nassau County police are currently searching for Sang Ho Kim, who they say is “armed and very dangerous.”
The shooting took place just after 10 a.m., Police Chief Steve Skrynecki said in a press conference.
“The motive here appears to be a work-related motive,” he told the public. “There was some disgruntlement between him and the company he was attacking. We have nothing to suggest that this individual is on a random, shooting rampage.”
Sang Ho did used to work for the vendor, but police are not sure what exactly sparked the shooting.

After firing two shots, one fatal, he fled the scene and headed toward the Roosevelt Field Mall in a Honda Pilot with a New York license plate: FMA-3648. The mall was put on lockdown around 10:45 a.m. and didn’t reopen until shortly after 3:00 p.m.
Public schools were also under lockdown until 1:54 p.m., Superintendent Robert Feirsen said.
Additionally Nassau County Community College has now lifted their lockdown, Steve said.
The police chief also added that they did not believe he was in the immediate area, but they do believe he is “armed and very dangerous.”
