At least three people were shot early Tuesday morning. According to reports, the shooter is still on the loose.

A call for shots fired at the Stop & Shop at 50 Cherry Valley Ave was received at 11:19 a.m., according to Nassau Police. Three people were shot, one fatally, according to NBC News, but police would not confirm if anyone was injured.
