Under a cold rain and clouds as bleak as the mood in this small town of 2,500, residents on Thursday began trying to figure out how a community and its spirit survive the sudden loss of four leaders--two favorite policemen, a part-time judge and a newspaper editor. It was as if their killer, a loner and longtime troublemaker named Carl Drega who went on a shooting rampage Tuesday afternoon, had blown a gaping hole through the town.

A man who apparently held a long-standing grudge against a judge killed her, two state troopers and a newspaper editor Tuesday during a wild three-hour rampage that ended when police shot him to death. Four other law enforcement officials were wounded, three of them as they pursued the gunman through the small towns and wooded areas of rural New Hampshire and Vermont. The man, identified as Carl Drega, was finally killed in a firefight with nearly two dozen officers.

A longtime troublemaker who gunned down four people before being killed by police had hidden hundreds of pounds of booby-trapped explosives throughout his rural property, officials said Wednesday. Authorities found at least 400 pounds of ammonium nitrate in "a fairly elaborate system of tunnels" at Carl Drega's home, Associate Atty. Gen. Michael Ramsdell said Wednesday. Ammonium nitrate is used in some explosives, as a fertilizer and in rocket fuel.

A man with a history of arrests on drug charges went on a shooting rampage in two communities, killing three men and critically wounding two before police shot him fatally, authorities said Thursday. Three of the shootings occurred in a neighborhood where one resident said drugs are sold "all hours of the night."
