QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) - State police say the suspect in the shooting of a Wal-Mart employee outside an upstate New York store is in custody after being brought to a hospital for treatment of a drug overdose.

Troopers say an ambulance delivered 54-year-old Raymond White of Lake George, New York to Glens Falls Hospital early Thursday afternoon. Security officials recognized him as the man wanted for questioning in Wednesday night’s shooting in neighboring Queensbury and called state police.
