Medford Pharmacy ShootingMedford Pharmacy Shooting, Suffolk County police have taken at least two people arrested Wednesday in connection to the slaughter of Father’s Day at a pharmacy Medford. News12 Long Island reports that investigators raided a house in Medford Square Pitchpine and took a man and a woman in handcuffs. A freelance photographer at the scene posted on Twitter that third person was also arrested.

A spokesman for the Suffolk County police would not confirm that the suspected gunman has been arrested.

The report came during a memorial service three days after a burglar killed four people in the Port of pharmacy medicines in Southaven Avenue 20 minutes after the store opened 10 am Sunday. The suspect fled with a backpack full of prescription drugs, although it was not immediately clear what kind.

Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer called the crime “one of the most brutal heinous crimes I have ever met.” Police have deployed hundreds of tips from the public and the murders.

The dead include a pharmacist, his assistant of 17 years old, and two customers. A steady stream of people has been paying their respects at the scene of the crime and murder.

The pharmacist, 45-year-old Raymond Ferguson of Centereach, was killed along with his assistant, Jennifer Mejia, East Patchogue, who was scheduled to graduate from the School of Bellport High on Thursday. Both clients include 71-year-old Bryon Medford and Taccetta Sheffield Jamie, 33, of Farmingville.

The four were killed at close range and did not resist, police said. The slaughter is presented as Long Island is gripped by an epidemic of prescription drugs and heroin.
