An employee fatally shot another worker during a fight at a Glen Head gas station Saturday morning, Nassau County police said.

Police were called to the Citgo service station at D and R Automotive on Glen Head Road  around 11:20 a.m. about the two employees involved in the fight, Nassau County police Det. Lt. Richard LeBrun said at a news conference Saturday afternoon.

One of the men pulled a gun and fatally shot the other employee, LeBrun said. The victim, a 35-year-old unidentified man, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Police arrested Lawrence Grammer, 71, of Glen Cove, and charged him with second-degree murder and first-degree criminal use of a firearm, police said. He was scheduled to be arraigned on Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead.

“This is a classic case of workplace violence,” LeBrun said.

Police did not say what the argument that led to the shooting was about.

Glen Head Road at the corner of Wall Street was closed for most of the day Saturday for the investigation.
