Police have confirmed a shooting spree in Garden City, NY., on Sept. 25. The shooting, which did not happen at the mall, but nearby, is now on lockdown as police search for the suspect. The man who is the alleged shooter has been identified as Sang Ho Kim.

Terrified shoppers fled for their lives when a gunman shot two people, killing one, at 645 South St. outside the Roosevelt Field Mall, in Long Island, NY., at around 10:50 A.M. The mall and local schools in Garden City are now on lockdown and streets near the mall are reportedly closed off.

Roosevelt Field Mall Shooting — Police Reveal Shooting Happened Next Door

Helicopters were flying overhead and dozens of police officers flocked to Roosevelt Field mall after a shooting began at Savenergy, a lighting company. It has been reported that two employees have been shot, one dead, according to NBC New York. The condition of how the other victim is doing is not known at this time.

“We are holding all the students in the buildings at this time,” said Cindy Morris, secretary to Dr. Robert Feirsen, the superintendent of Garden City public schools. “We are in lockout in all public schools in Garden City.”

Roosevelt Field Mall Shooting Suspect Description Released

The gunman has been described as a 6’2″ Asian man named, Sang Ho Kim, and police say that they do not believe he is a random shooting spree, but could be still armed and dangerous.

and is a former employee of Safe Energy which is next door to the mall. He is said to be between 6’0″ and 6’3″ feet tall, and is wearing a brown or gray suit jacket. The registration on his white Honda Pilot, is FMA 3648.

Dozens of police are searching for the shooter near the scene with guns drawn. Shoppers are not being allowed out or into the mall at this time.

Also, local shoppers and residents are incredibly worried and rightfully scared.

“This is terrifying,” a shopper, Nancy Petrillo, told News Day. “After what happened in Kenya, everyone is already on edge.”

This mall is about 30 minutes from New York City, in the affluent community of Garden, City, NY. All My Children star, Susan Lucci, has a house nearby in the area.

The mall is quite large, it has 270 speciality stores.

The incident is definitely a scary one, given everything going on all over the world.

Who writes this drivel? Shoppers didn’t flee for their lives and what’s the point about mentioning Susan Lucci?

Are you dumb or are you dumb. There were so many shootings with whites too. Don’t be racist and say it;s one group of people. Just shows how close minded many people are sadly.

I know this is only a lowly blog, but seriously, how can you go as far to say that one person is confirmed dead?? Seriously, where did you get that? The fact that you are writing this before any reputable sources have confirmed this is ridiculous and in very poor taste.

This isn’t even close to accurate. The shooing occurred on South Street in East Garden City, which is approximately a half mile from the Roosevelt Field Mall. The alleged shooter was seen fleeing the scene in a whit suv and headed towards the mall. As a precaution the mall, surrounding office buildings and nearby schools were placed on lockdown. I know this because I am local and know someone who works in one of those offices and spoke with police.

Please check your sources and stop spreading inaccurate information!

Wow, talk about not getting facts straight. The shooting happened a few blocks from the mall and as a precaution the put the mall on lockdown. The shooter did not shoot anyone in or outside of the mall. Maybe do some research before posting misleading information.

What the heck does the fact that Susan Lucci is an area resident, have ANYTHING to do with this ?? Are we just name dropping for the sake of it ? Stick to the story, celebrity residents are completely irrelevant! :\
