LONG ISLAND, N.Y.—Police arrested a Nassau County jail guard who fatally shot a nurse’s aide at Nassau University Medical Center (NUMC) before killing her uncle, shooting her grandfather and abducting her niece early Wednesday morning.

Kim Wolfe, 43, reportedly arranged to meet with Stacie Williams, 45, a nursing aide in the NUMC’s maternity ward, who the suspect was reportedly dating. The pair had broken up and were trying to reconcile; however, the meeting turned violent when Wolfe shot the victim with a 9mm handgun, reports the Long Island Press.

A security guard found Williams suffering from multiple gunshot wounds around 1:35 a.m. outside the hospital. She died in the emergency room 30 minutes later.

Meanwhile, Wolfe drove to her uncle’s nearby home, where she confronted her 88-year-old grandfather, Marchall Williams, Sr., whom she shot in the leg. Wolfe fatally shot her uncle, Michael Williams, 56, after he tried to intervene.
