UPDATE: Cops kill suspect in deadly NY shooting rampage

HERKIMER, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say the suspect in the fatal shooting of four men in neighboring upstate New York villages was holed up in a small, cluttered room in an abandoned bar when he died in a shootout with police SWAT teams.

State police Superintendent Joseph D’Amico says 64-year-old Kurt Myers fired through a first-floor door after troopers and FBI agents entered around 8 a.m. today, killing an FBI dog sent into the room.

D’Amico says police returned fire, killing Myers.

His death ended a nearly 19-hour standoff that began after police say he killed four men and wounded two others at a barber shop in Mohawk and a car care business in Herkimer.

D’Amico says police still don’t know why Myers went on the shooting rampage.

And the NRA says that the solution is more guns.

If only one of the victims were armed, then maybe they could have saved the rest. I agree with the NRA
