OLD LYME, Conn. (AP) - The man fatally stabbed at a Connecticut supermarket over the weekend has been identified.

State police on Monday identified the victim of the stabbing Sunday afternoon at a Big Y supermarket in Old Lyme as 34-year-old Jing-Song Gao, of Methuen, Massachusetts.

Police say Gao operated the sushi counter.

The company says he and another man stabbed both worked for a store vendor.

Responding officers found two men stabbed.

The other man, 40-year-old Tan Lin, of Old Lyme, remains hospitalized with serious injuries.

Police say the men knew each other and the stabbing was not random.

Police have not announced charges.

Big Y is based in Springfield, Massachusetts, and has about 80 stores in Massachusetts and Connecticut. The company said it is cooperating with police and offering additional support to workers.


The story has been corrected to show that the deceased victim worked for a vendor and was not a store employee
