N.Y. Pharmacy Gunman Wanted Painkillers

June 21, 2011  | 

Four people killed during a pharmacy store robbery in suburban New York City, including a teenager due to graduate high school this week, were shot at very close range by a dangerous suspect intent on stealing painkillers.

Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer also warned physicians and the owners of small drugstores in the area to be vigilant about anyone "expressing an urgent need for prescription painkillers."

The shootings happened at about 10:20 a.m. inside Haven Drugs in Medford, a family-owned pharmacy.
