Close on the heels of a terrorist attack in a shopping mall in Kenya, a man shot two people in a New York mall, reported the Fox News on Sept. 25, 2013. The incident left one dead from fatal wounds and another injured.
Police are reportedly searching for the shooter, Sang Ho Kim, who is believed to have fled the scene of crime in a white SUV.
The shooting happened shortly after 10am and police said that the incident does not appear to be a random shooting incident but a motivated one.
The gunman was described as a male with Asian features, about 6’2" and was dressed in a red shirt and a suit jacket. The shooter is believed to be a disgruntled 63-year-old man named Sang Ho Kim.
Police said that Kim once served as a vendor to Savenergy, a light fixture import firm. What sparked the incident was unclear. But the gunman just walked into the room and fired at the owner and employees.
Newsday reported that police blocked several streets near the mall as the shooting was several blocks away from Roosevelt Field Mall. Nearby Garden City schools also were placed on lock down as a precautionary measure.
