BELLPORT - A vigil was held tonight in Bellport for one of the victims of the Medford pharmacy shooting that left four people dead.
Friends and classmates gathered at Bellport Bay to remember 17-year-old Jennifer Mejia who was killed while she was working part-time at Haven Pharmacy.
Mejia was set to graduate from Bellport High School this week.
She was one of the four who was killed during what police describe as a robbery at the pharmacy around 10:30 a.m. this morning.
"She says I got to go and she turned around and says Happy Father's Day," said Rene Mejia, the father of Jennifer, about the last time he saw his daughter. "I feel bad because I didn't even hold her."
Police also identified the three other victims of the shooting as Raymond Ferguson, 45, of Centereach, Byron Sheffield, 71, of Medford and Jamie Taccetta, 33, of Farmingville.
Investigators have released a description of the suspect as a white male with a thin build standing 5 feet 8 inches tall, unshaven with a dark beard and mustache, short dark hair, wearing a white baseball cap, dark hoodie and blue jeans and carrying a black backpack. Police say he was seen fleeing eastbound on South Haven Drive.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Suffolk Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
