HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP)-- Three people were shot, two of them fatally, during a shooting spree early Wednesday morning, and a corrections officer related to two of the victims was arrested, Nassau County police said.

Stacie Williams, a 45-year-old nurse's aide who worked the night shift in the maternity ward of Nassau University Medical Center, was found shot multiple times at about 1 a.m. outside the hospital in East Meadow.

In the other shooting several miles away in Hempstead, a 56-year-old man was fatally shot, police said. He is believed to be the uncle of the suspect, Nassau County Correction Officer Kim Wolfe, 43. Another man, believed to be Wolfe's grandfather, was shot in the leg.

Wolfe also abducted a 23-year-old woman believed to be her niece before fleeing the scene in a car, police said.

The car was pulled over by police at 5:45 a.m. The 23-year-old was found unharmed.

Police said the suspect was armed, and they would test the firearm to determine whether it was used in the shootings.

Lt. Kevin Smith said she surrendered peacefully.

Police did not offer details on a possible motive for the shootings.
