Galleria Mall shoppers in White Plains cautious after fatal stabbing in garage

Shoppers at the Galleria Mall in White Plains were cautious this holiday after a fatal stabbing in a parking garage last week.

While shoppers took advantage of the holiday specials, friends and family continued to pay their last respects to Connie Russo Carriero. Police say Phillip Grant, a level 3 sex offender, fatally stabbed Carriero Wednesday. According to police, the incident was random and Grant was just looking for a white woman to kill.

Carriero?s funeral is scheduled for Tuesday in Harrison. Grant is scheduled to appear in a White Plains courtroom to answer to the murder charge Tuesday.
