A gun recovered from the Hudson River Wednesday may be the one that was used in the deadly workplace shooting on Long Island two weeks ago, police say.
Two people were shot in the offices of Savenergy in Garden City on Sept. 25, one fatally, by Sang Ho Kim, a Queens man described as a disgruntled business associated, according to police.
Kim fled upstate after the shootings and his body was found five days later in the Hudson River, near Bear Mountain Bridge.
The handgun recovered by state police and Nassau County police Wednesday was located near the bank of Sandy Beach State Park in Cold Spring. Investigators are testing the weapon to confirm the match to the Garden City shootings.
Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith said the recovery of the gun should ease park visitors' concerns that the weapon could be out in the open.
