The Manhunt for the Roosevelt Field Shooter Moves Upstate

Local News, Crime

The search for the suspect in the Roosevelt Field shooting has moved upstate to Putnam County.

The manhunt for the disgruntled Roosevelt Field shooter, Sang Ho Kim, still continues. His searh has moved from Cold Spring Harbor in Nassau County to Upstate after Kim’s car was found abandoned in Putnam County
More than 100 officers from local and federal law agencies have been searching the area that lies on the bank of the Hudson River. Residents were urged to lock their doors and be on the lookout for Kim. On Thursday schools in the area were either delayed or closed but have opened back up friday. 
"We're working to keep the public safe," said Putnam County Sheriff Donald Smith to NBC. "We don't want to be alarmists but we have a fugitive on the loose -- someone that committed a homicide potentially still in this area."
Amanda Playford, a lifetime resident of the small town, told NBC news the hunt for Kim was terrifying. "It's heartbreaking, it's scary just knowing this guy drove by my house," she said. "I'm trying to stay indoors as much as I can."
Checkpoints have been set up on Main Street and police are searching all cars passing through. Law enforcement also believe the shooter could have used mass transit to escape.  
Kim has prior arrests but none were because of violent crimes. In 1997 he faced a charge of driving as an unlicensed operator in Westchester. In 1998 and 2006 he was arrested for DWI. In 2008 Kim was also arrested for trademark counterfeiting in New Jersey.
