NEW YORK — The Roosevelt Field mall reopened Wednesday afternoon after being in lockdown for several hours after a fatal shooting Wednesday morning at a nearby business in East Garden City, N.Y.

About half an hour after the 10:11 a.m. incident Wednesday, the Roosevelt Field mall in Garden City, N.Y., was placed in lockdown, at 10:45 a.m. Shortly before 1 p.m., police were allowing those inside any of the mall’s 270 stores to exit should they choose to. After police searched the area, the mall reopened to the public and planned to close at its normal time of 9:30 p.m. Some stores remained closed since they had already sent their employees home, said a spokesman for Simon Properties, which owns the Roosevelt Field mall.
