NEW YORK – At least one person was killed and two injured after a gunman opened fire in the office of a manager at a Long Island grocery store on Tuesday, police said.

Patrick Ryder, Nassau County Police Commissioner appointed Gabriel DeWitt Wilson, as someone interested in the shooting, told reporters the suspect fled the scene at the Stop and Shop in West Hempstead, New York, heading west on a toll highway.

Ryder said the suspect, a black man, was dressed in black and was allegedly armed with a small handgun. He said the man could be a current or former employee of the grocery store.

The person killed was a 49-year-old store worker, Ryder said. A few hundred customers were inside the store and the shooting took place in an upstairs manager’s office, he said.

Police tweeted a photo of Wilson and asked the public to call 911 if they saw him.
