Cops: Gunman in Nassau Shooting Spree Shot Himself

Mineola (WALK) - Nassau police say that the Queens man blamed for last week's deadly shooting spree near Roosevelt Field shot himself before he died.

A report from the medical examiner in upstate Rockland County says that Sang Ho Kim, 63, shot himself in the mouth before he died but had also drowned and had serious heart disease, all contributing factors in his death. Kim's body was found floating in the Hudson River on Monday, near the Bear Mountain Bridge. The remains appear to have been in the waeter for several days, according to investigators.

Police say Kim shot two people last Wednesday at Savenergy, an energy and lighting firm in East Garden City, killing company employee Zachariah Yong Jae Shin, 25, of Queens. The firm's owner, John Hyung Choi of Woodmere, survived being shot but was seriously hurt.

The search for Kim had moved upstate after his SUV was found abandoned at Little Stony Point, a park on the Hudson River in Cold Spring, about 60 miles north of New York City.
