Corrections officer allegedly kills two in shooting spree
Two people, including a nurse, were shot to death during a shooting spree on Long Island. A Nassau County corrections officer is under arrest.
Nassau County police say the shootings occurred early Wednesday morning in East Meadow and nearby Hempstead.
One of the victims was a 45-year-old nurse, who cops found lying on the ground, having been shot multiple times, outside Nassau University Medical Center just after 1:30 a.m. Authorities rushed the Hempstead woman, who works the night shift in the maternity ward to the emergency room. She died half an hour later.
Shortly thereafter, cops say another person was shot to death on a nearby street, most likely by the same shooter. Police said the 56-year-old man, possibly the suspect’s uncle, died at the scene, and an older man, possibly a grandfather, was shot in the leg. Authorities took him to the hospital.
After the shootings, cops believe the suspect abducted a 23-year-old woman, possibly a niece, and fled in a Mitsubishi Montero. Cops caught up with the getaway vehicle on Harriet Avenue and arrested Kim Wolfe, a 43-year-old Nassau County Corrections Officer, just before 6 a.m. The hostage was released unharmed.
Cops did find a weapon on the suspect, and say it will be tested to determine if it was used in the shootings. They had no possible motives for the shootings.
The investigation is ongoing.
Makes you wonder how this guy treated the inmates at the jail or prison he worked at, doesn’t it?
