NYPD: Suspect in deadly Penn Station shooting from LI

One of the suspects in a deadly Manhattan shooting near Penn Station is from Long Island.



The NYPD says 27-year-old Vincent Arcona, of Medford, is wanted in connection to the shooting Monday morning at the subway entrance on West 35st Street and Eighth Avenue.



Police are also looking for two other unidentified suspects, including one man who was captured on surveillance.



According to police, an argument in a McDonald's led to the shooting.



One man was shot in the neck and died. Two others were rushed to the hospital.



Arcona's last known address is on Race Avenue in Medford. He also lived on Eagle Avenue, where News 12 met Sue Scalici, a family-friend.



Scalici says the police were in the neighborhood searching for Arcona. She says she hasn't seen Arcona since he was 11 years old, but received a call from his mother.



"She said 'Sue, if he shows up -- don't let him in,'" says Scalici.



Police say Arcona is armed and dangerous. His Facebook page shows a picture of a gun that he describes as "his wife." He also listed his occupation as a "street pharmacist."



Anyone with information about his whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
