MEDFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Police have reviewed a surveillance video from a pharmacy in a New York City suburb where four people were fatally shot over the weekend, including a 17-year-old girl who was to graduate from high school this week.

Newsday reports that the camera captured images of the suspect: a man in his late 20s or early 30s, about 5-foot-8 with a thin build. He has dark hair, was unshaven or has a dark beard and mustache.

Police say the four victims were shot dead inside the family-owned Haven Drugs pharmacy in Medford Sunday morning. They say the suspect was armed with a handgun and stole prescription drugs before fleeing with a black backpack.

The victims were identified as the pharmacist, the 17-year-old who worked as a pharmacist assistant and two customers.
