NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The body of Sang Ho Kim, the suspected gunman in a deadly workplace shooting in East Garden City, Long Island, has been found in the Hudson River, a source told Fox 5 News.

A boater spotted a body Monday morning south of Bear Mountain Bridge and notified authorities.

An Environmental Conservation Police patrol boat, which was nearby, recovered the body.

The Rockland County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed the identification, authorities said.

Nassau County police had said that Kim, 63, went inside a lighting fixture company on Wednesday morning and confronted several employees and began shooting. He hit two male victims. One died at the scene. The other was rushed into surgery at a Long Island hospital.

Kim fled the scene in a white Honda Pilot which was found in a park in Putnam County York last week.

"The tragic violence in East Garden City and the search for Mr. Kim in our local community caused fear and apprehension for many folks," Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith said in a statement. "Today's events have at least allowed us to turn the page on what was a scary chapter for local residents."
