A disgruntled construction worker who allegedly shot his boss yesterday in Midtown was arrested today, the New York Daily News reported. Port Authority police collared the suspect, Robert Sasso, when he turned up at the union’s training facility in Queens sometime after 8 a.m., sources told the Daily News.

“I guess he figured with the boss out of the way, it’s okay to go back to work,” a law enforcement source told the Daily News.

The suspect was taken to a Port Authority police station at John F. Kennedy Airport, where the NYPD will pick him up and interview him for the attempted murder.

Sasso, 31, allegedly fired one shot into Louis Lamburini’s shoulder as the victim read a newspaper in his truck Monday, at West 49th Street and Ninth Avenue. Lamburini fired Sasso three weeks prior because of poor job performance. [NYDN] –Julie Strickland
