More shots have been fired in upstate New York as police continued to hunt the man they suspect of fatally shooting four people and wounding two more on Wednesday morning. See tweets and photos below.
The images from Herkimer, N.Y., have been surreal for local residents. Police helicopters, SUVs, armored vehicles and SWAT teams have descended on the town of roughly 7,000 where two people were reported fatally shot at an oil-change business.
Police identified the suspect as Kurt Myers, 64, from Mohawk, where two more people were killed and two others wounded at a barber shop about a mile from the oil-change business. A fire also was reported at a nearby apartment building.
A few hours after the manhunt began, as many as six shots were heard in downtown Herkimer, where local residents reported seeing snipers on the roofs.
