AT&T Wireless store to speed up relocation plans following shooting
NEW YORK MILLS, N.Y. (WKTV) - The AT&T Wireless store in New York Mills that was the scene of a tragic shooting just two weeks ago, will not be re-opening its doors, company officials said.
Instead, the company will accelerate plans already in the works before the May 27 shooting to move relocate the store to a location in Consumer Square in New Hartford.
AT&T officials said they plan on having the store open in Consumer Square by the end of the month, but were unsure how many of the employees who were working at the store at the time of the May 27 shooting would remain with the company and move to the new location.
Seth Turk, the employee who was shot that day by disgruntled customer Abraham Dickan, 79, remains in St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Utica, but has requested that his condition no longer be released. He was last reported in fair condition.
Officials said Dickan, a customer who had caused problems for employees in the past, walked into the store on May 27 with a gun and a hit list of employees he was planning to kill.
