Who Fired Fatal Shots, Police Probe

Detectives are conducting ballistic tests, interviews, and reviewing the surveillance video from the stores surrounding Charlie’s Family Pharmacy in Seaford where federal agent John Capano was slain after a confrontation with James McGoey who has just held up the pharmacy. Capano was in the store picking up prescription medications for his ailing father when McGoey entered the store, announced a hold up, then left as Capano followed him towards the door to confront him. While this was happening another person ran to a deli several doors down owned by a retired Nassau County officer to report the robbery in progress. The retired officer and an off-duty NYPD officer, a customer in the deli, ran to the scene and found Capano and McGoey in an altercation. Both Capano and McGoey died of gunshots though it is unclear who fired the fatal shots. McGoey was previously convicted of pharmacy holdups on four other separate occasions and was released from prison in August 2010. He was armed with a pellet gun.
