Howard's favorite childhood mall. http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/cops-rush-roosevelt-field-mall-long-island-article-1.2473922 1 employee shot, 1 in custody at Roosevelt Field Mall on Long Island following luxury watch robbery foiled by off-duty NYPD cop Bad time for a watch heist. An off-duty NYPD inspector and retired NYPD detective foiled a dimwitted robber who shot a 67-year-old employee at the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, L.I. Tuesday in the height of shopping season, Nassau County officials and a police source said. The scary shooting following the alleged stickup at a Tourneu watch store sent holiday shoppers scrambling in what one witness called “a complete stampede.” "I did nothing heroic," said NYPD Inspector Kenneth Lehr. "I just happened to be at the scene. I was just there for support.” The robber walked into the store around 1 p.m. and flashed a gun near a display of high-end Rolex watches, Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano said. A security guard — who is a retired NYPD detective — grabbed the gun. During the struggle, the gun went off, hitting a worker “clear across the corridor,” according to off-duty NYPD Inspector Kenneth Lehr, who was in the mall doing some holiday shopping. The victim was in stable condition, officials said.
