Funeral set as police investigate fatal NY drugstore holdup that killed off-duty federal agent
SEAFORD, N.Y. (AP) ' A funeral Mass is scheduled for this week for an off-duty federal agent shot to death during a pharmacy holdup on New York's Long Island.
It's still not clear who shot veteran ATF agent John Capano, who died Saturday while trying to intervene in the robbery.
Police say that someone ran into a nearby deli and shouted that the drugstore was being robbed. A retired county police lieutenant and an off-duty NYPD officer who were in the deli ran to the pharmacy. Shots were fired, and Capano and the stickup man were killed.
Police are conducting ballistics tests and interviews as part of their investigation into who fired the shots.
A funeral will be held Friday for Capano, who served as an explosives expert in Iraq and Afghanistan.
