West Hempstead Shooting Report

Multiple shots were fired at a supermarket on Long Island Tuesday, according to police.

There was an “active shooter incident” in West Hempstead at a Long Island Stop & Shop grocery store, according to Nassau County police and the county executive.

Nassau County Police wrote: “There has been an active shooter situation at the West Hempstead Stop & Shop. The #NassauCountyPD is canvassing the area & nearby schools have been notified to lock down & secure their buildings. The subject has not been apprehended yet & we ask that area residents remain indoors.”

Laura Curran, the Nassau County Executive, imparted a similar message on Twitter, “There has been an active shooter incident at the West Hempstead Stop & Shop. Police are canvassing the area & schools nearby have been notified to lock down and secure their buildings. @NassauCountyPD is asking all area residents to remain indoors. Suspect is not yet apprehended.”

According to NBC New York, three people were shot and one person is deceased. That’s preliminary information as reports of the shooting broke out around noon on April 20, 2021.

The shooting reports come as the nation is reeling from a series of mass shootings, including at a tavern in Kenosha, Wisconsin, a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado, a FedEx facility in Indianapolis, Indiana, and spas in the Atlanta, Georgia, area.

Nassau County police received the report of the shooting at 11:19 a.m. at the Stop & Shop in the Cherry Valley shopping center in West Hempstead.

Authorities say this is not an active shooter situation. The building is currently being evacuated and the investigation is ongoing.

The West Hempstead School District said they were informed by the police that there is activity in the area.

The Suspect May Have Jumped on a Bus

The suspect is believed to be at large and may have jumped on a bus to get away, according to NBC New York. The suspect’s name and motive are not yet clear. It’s also not yet clear whether the shooting was a targeted or random attack.

The News 12 chopper was live above the scene. Police officers could be seen outside the store’s door.

“We are presently in a lock out and we’ll inform you when it is over,” the school district said. “Please do not come to the buildings. Everyone is safe. Thank you.”

The West Hempstead School District wrote on Twitter: “Good morning. This is a message from the West Hempstead School District. We were informed by the police that there is activity in the area. We are presently in a lockout and we’ll inform you when it is over. Please do not come to the buildings. Everyone is safe. Thank you.”
