  • 1 dead, 2 hurt in Long Island supermarket office shooting, suspect at large: Police

John Durso, president of Local 338 RWDSU/UFCW, a union that represents numerous workers at the store, said he was "devastated" by the shooting.

There were around "a couple hundred" people inside the store, Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder told reporters.

"Everyone was running around upstairs where offices were", Butterman told the newspaper. Police say Wilson is armed with a handgun.

Police say a person of interest is Gabriel Dewitt Wilson, who is 31 years old and has addresses in Hempstead and Long Beach.

One person, identified as a 49-year-old man, succumbed to his injuries, while two others were conscious and alert at an area hospital.

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

Ryder says the shooter was employed at one time there, but it's unclear if he was still employed at the location.

Dozens of ambulances and police vehicles remain on the scene outside the store.
