A Long Island healthcare worker was fatally shot in a parking lot near the facility where she worked, her employer said in a statement.
The victim, a 33-year-old woman who has not yet been identified, was shot multiple times in the Marcus Avenue underground car park in New Hyde Park just after 6 p.m., according to police sources.
The publicly accessible garage is adjacent to doctors’ offices and specialist care practices, said a spokesperson for Northwell Health, where the woman was on staff.
Other Northwell employees provided immediate medical attention at the scene in an effort to save his life. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead, Northwell Health said, referring all further questions to Nassau County police.
It is unclear what led to the shooting. Nassau police say a man was seen fleeing the scene, heading west on Union Turnpike. It is not known what led to the shooting, or if the victim knew the attacker.
Nassau police have released very few details, but it appears no arrests have been made.
Northwell Health said it was providing counseling services to some of its staff as colleagues mourned the violent death of their colleague.
