The suspected gunman who shot up a light fixture company in East Garden City in Nassau County Wednesday morning hails from Queens, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

Sang Ho Kim, 64, allegedly walked into Savenergy, located near the Roosevelt Field Mall, just after 10 a.m. and shot two of the four employees inside, the Journal said.

Nassau County Police Chief Steven Skrynecki held a news conference hours after the incident, indicating Kim likely had business dealings with the company and had specifically targeted it, according to the Journal.

Authorities launched a massive manhunt for Kim after he fled the scene in a white Honda Pilot, and locked down the mall and schools in the area, the Journal said.

Same question I ask with all of these terrorism incidents (yes the definition of terrorism it to cause terror and this did) - where did he get the gun? Is he a citizen?
