The body of the Queens man suspected in last week’s Long Island shooting at a company was discovered in the Hudson River north of the city Monday, Nassau County police said.

Sang Ho Kim, 63, is suspected of walking into a East Garden City lighting firm called Savenergy Wednesday and fatally shooting Zachariah Yong Jae Shin, 25, an employee from Whitestone, and injuring the firm’s owner, John Choi, according to Nassau County police and an NBC report.

Authorities believe Kim had a business disagreement with the company, AP said.

Kim fled the scene in the wake of the shooting, and his white Honda Pilot was found the same day in Putnam County.

State park police came across the body at the foot of a bridge, according to AP, and the body was then taken to the Rockland County Medical Examiner’s Office for identification, authorities said.
