The massacre happened at about 10:20 a.m. inside a family-owned pharmacy in a small cluster of medical offices in Medford, a middle-class hamlet on Long Island about 60 miles east of New York City.

BTW - I’m 59 and assume you are too .
oops ...mis-read your post ..You are 60 ...Well ,we’re close in age .
And from the picture I say go for a heroin addict. Meth heads (I've seen) don't have beards as they can't scratch at the invisible bugs crawling under their skin with one.
And mr police try looking 'local'. Some mutt from NYC's streets wouldn't know about this area of Long Island unless he's been, or lived there, right?
You can probably get them to respond to a problem quicker if you mail them a letter.That line would be funny if it wasn't so sad.
Your whole post reminds me of similar things I've read about England, where it seems the police never arrive until they are absolutely sure that the "coast is clear".
We need a full house-cleaning of government at all levels in this country. And of course we're not going to get it.
But even the best PD couldn’t have gotten to this crime scene on time. The 911 call was almost certainly made after all the shots were fired.
This is clearly a case of: When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.
