    HERKIMER, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) – Police in upstate New York are searching for a suspect after shootings at a car wash and a barbershop left four people dead and at least two wounded.

    State police tell Mohawk Valley local media outlets a man shot and killed two unidentified people Wednesday morning at Gaffey’s Fast Lube in the village of Herkimer. Two others were killed at John’s Barber Shop, in the nearby village of Mohawk.

    Herkimer Village police would only say that there was a shooting and a manhunt.

    The Utica Observer-Dispatch reported that police may have located the suspected shooter in a jewelry shop.

    Firefighters also responded to a fire at an apartment building in Mohawk that is connected to the shootings, the Observer-Dispatch reported.

    Initial reports suggest the suspect is a white male, 50-60, about 5’11, slim build, white hair and white beard, according to the report.

    The two villages are about 65 miles east of Syracuse, on opposite sides of the Mohawk River.

    Herkimer County Community College and local schools are on lockdown.

    Upstate New York Shooting Update: Suspected gunman ID'd as Kurt Meyers, police say

    By Crimesider Staff
    Police say Kurt Myers, 64, of Mohawk, N.Y., is accused of killing four people in shootings at two different locations in upstate New York.
    / WTVH
    (CBS/AP) Updated 1:57p.m.: Multiple gunshots heard in New York village where police seek gunman in killings of 4.
    HERKIMER, N.Y. - A man opened fire at a car wash and a barbershop a mile apart Wednesday morning, killing four people and wounding at least two others, and a 64-year-old suspect is being sought, police said.
    Authorities are looking for Kurt Meyers, said Joseph Malone, the police chief for Herkimer and Mohawk. Officials say guns and ammunition were found inside his Mohawk apartment after emergency crews were sent to a fire there Wednesday morning.
    Soon after, two people were fatally shot and two others wounded at John's Barber Shop, around the corner from the apartment, police said. The second shooting happened about a mile away in Herkimer, where two people were killed at Gaffey's Fast Lube and Car Wash, authorities said.
    The two villages are about 65 miles east of Syracuse, on opposite sides of the Mohawk River in a region known as the Mohawk Valley.
    Officials said Meyers remained at large Wednesday afternoon.
    Late Wednesday morning, police SWAT teams and a helicopter converged on a jewelry store in Herkimer.
    The Utica Observer-Dispatch reported that police were focusing on Freddy's Jewelers on Main Street, near the car wash and oil change business. The newspaper reported that officials in Mohawk, however, seemed to think the suspect was still on foot somewhere. Other reports suggested he may have been picked up by a taxi.
    Herkimer County Community College and local schools are on lockdown. The college sent an automated cellphone alert around 10:40 a.m., telling students and staff that there was an "active shooter" in the area. The message identified the gunman as a man in his 60s, with a white beard and driving a red Jeep Cherokee. A text alert a few minutes later said the campus was on lockdown. Another alert advised people to remain inside buildings until further notice.
    Amanda Viscomi, Herkimer's acting clerk-treasurer for the village of 7,700, told The Associated Press the shooting at Gaffey's happened a few blocks from village hall. She said she was told the shooter was at large and that state police, sheriff's deputies and other police were swarming the area.
    "Everybody's on lockdown, all the schools, the college, the village," Viscomi said. "It's very, very scary."
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the head of the state police are on their way to the area and are expected to brief the media later in the day.
    Herkimer is named for the German immigrant family that settled in the western Mohawk Valley in the 1720s. The economically distressed villages are two miles away from Ilion, where a 2-century-old Remington Arms gun plant is a major employer.

    (Reuters) - Authorities on Thursday killed a man suspected of shooting dead four people a day earlier in separate incidents at a barbershop and a car wash in neighboring upstate New York towns, police said.

    The suspected gunman, identified as Kurt Myers, 64, was killed in a shootout with police and FBI agents at a building in Herkimer, New York, where he had barricaded himself the previous day, New York State Police Superintendent Joseph D'Amico said.

    As the authorities entered the first floor of the abandoned building, the gunman, described as a loner, opened fire on them, striking and killing an FBI police dog, D'Amico said. The gunman was then shot and killed.

    "He engaged them almost immediately," D'Amico said at a press conference. "It all took place shortly before 8 a.m. this morning, and it all unfolded and concluded in a matter of minutes. We know he had the shotgun with him that he used in yesterday's attacks."

    Four people were killed and two others critically injured in the shootings on Wednesday in the sleepy New York villages of Herkimer and Mohawk, which face one another across the Mohawk River. The villages are about 220 miles northwest of New York City.

    Police said they did not know of a motive behind the shooting sprees.

    "The violence that was inflicted yesterday on these victims was horrible," D'Amico said.

    Shortly before 9:30 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, Myers drove to John's Barber Shop in Mohawk, and after a brief exchange of words inside the shop, he opened fire with a shotgun, according to police.

    Two customers were killed, and the owner and another customer were critically wounded, D'Amico said. They remained in critical condition on Thursday, he said.

    "Totally unprovoked, we believe he fired a number of rounds from the shotgun," he said on Wednesday.

    Myers then drove to Gaffey's Fast Lube in the neighboring Herkimer, and fired again, D'Amico said, killing two people.

    State police in military garb and using an armored vehicle surrounded an abandoned building in the downtown section of Herkimer, a town of 7,700 people, on Wednesday afternoon. Shots were fired from inside the building and police returned fire.

    Myers' arrest record includes a drunken driving charge in 1973, police said.

    The killings took place shortly after a fire was reported at the Mohawk apartment house where Myers lived, said Mohawk Mayor James Baron.

    A search of the apartment turned up a cache of guns and ammunition, according to officials.

    In January Cuomo signed into law one of the country's toughest gun control measures, the first enacted in the wake of the mass shooting in December that killed 20 students and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

    The law expands the state's ban on assault weapons, puts limits on ammunition capacity and has new measures to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. It also mandates a life sentence without parole for anyone who murders a first responder.

    Those killed in the car wash shooting were identified as Thomas Stefka, an employee at Gaffey's, and Michael Renshaw, a 20-year employee of the New York State Corrections Department, state police said.

    The barbershop victims were Harry Montgomery, 68, of Mohawk, and Michael Rancier, 57, of Herkimer. The shop owner, John Seymour, and a customer, Dan Haslauer, were rushed to St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Utica in critical condition, state police said.

    The two towns are located about midway between Albany, the state capital, and Syracuse.

    Any incident involving guns is now sensationalized in order to promote gun confiscation from all US citizens. by sensationalizing these stories and buying into the SLC garbage the implication is that every person that has a gun will do this.

    Where are the multiple articles about every single shooting in Detroit where the guns aren't registered and are used by criminals, many teenagers, that have multiple offenses and are the products of a welfare society?



    Chicago Weekend Shootings: 10 Dead, At Least 40 Wounded
    Posted: 03/19/2012

    At least 10 people were killed and 40 others wounded in one of the most violent Chicago weekends in recent history.
    The Chicago Sun-Times reports that most of the victims were in their mid-teens or early 30s, with the exception of 6-year-old Aliyah Shell, who was gunned down Saturday while playing in front of her home in the Little Village neighborhood.

    Two teens were arrested and charged in Aliyah's slaying Sunday.

    As temperatures climbed into the 80s -- a record in the city for March -- the violence continued.
    Saturday, Adrian Cruz, 24, was fatally wounded in a drive-by shooting on the 5900 block of South Fairfield Avenue. Vincent Fitts, 22, was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head in the 800 block of East 79th Street.
    Around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, Jeremy Anthony, 24, was shot in the back while inside a vehicle in the 6300 block of South Ellis Avenue, CBS reports. Anthony was pronounced dead on arrival at the nearby University of Chicago Medical Center.

    Fox Chicago has a rundown of the other fatal shootings here.

    Those wounded in shootings, according to the Sun-Times, included a 1-year-old girl and her mother, who suffered graze wounds Sunday on the South Side.

    CBS Chicago reports that both teens arrested in Aliyah's death wereaffiliated with the Latin Kings street gang.
    “This is what the politicians should focus on, instead of promising lower taxes and lowering the gas and stopping pornography,” neighbor Ray Navarro said. “You know what? I’ll pay the taxes. I’ll pay the high gas prices, but focus on this violence that’s killing these kids.”

    Last year, two Chicago Sun-Times reporters won a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage of a similarly violent Chicago weekend in 2008 -- when 40 people were shot and seven killed in just 59 hours.

    The violence garnered national attention, but this weekend was even worse. In 2010,lawmakers considered calling in the National Guard to combat Chicago gang violence.

    On Sunday, community activist Andrew Holmes told ABC Chicago that people in the communities impacted by this violence need to speak up.

    "You can't lose another child to gun violence," Holmes told the station. "If they stay silent this will continue to happen."

    DETROIT 187: 16 SHOT, 7 DEAD IN MOTOR CITY WITHIN 24 HOURS


    Aug. 14, 2011 6:50pm Christopher Santarelli


    Violence has erupted in Detroit. Since 6 a.m. Friday 16 people have been shot, 7 of those are now dead, and the Detroit News reports that police are scrambling to curb the bloodshed which has put the city on pace for 350 murders this year:
    “A 14-year-old boy was shot and killed Saturday night after police released details about a 24-hour spate of shootings in the city that left six others dead and nine injured.

    Detroit Police say the juvenile was shot around 6 p.m. Saturday in the 4600 block of Coplin while he and an 18-year-old boy were playing with a gun that went off. The bullet struck the 14-year-old, killing him.Police said the suspect is in custody and the weapon has been recovered.

    The shooting follows nine others that occurred between 6 a.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Saturday.At one scene, five people were shot, police said. At another, three people were shot. The remainder of victims were shot at separate locations.One other victim was in critical condition, one in stable and the remainder in serious condition at area hospitals.

    The city was on pace for 350 murders this year, according to an analysis by The Detroit News. In a city that has lost 25 percent of its population since 2000, that could put the year on pace to reach the highest per-capita rates in a decade.”

    What perhaps makes the boom in shootings even more disturbing has been the location of each attack. Victims have been gunned down on foot or shot in “drive-bys” at backyard parties, walking to a basketball court, and even while changing a car tire.

    WXYZ obtained this statement from Detroit Mayor Dave Bing’s office regarding the surge in violence:

    “Reducing violent crime is our number one priority. Chief Godbee and the men and women of the Detroit Police Department are working around the clock to bring these criminals to justice. Our community must continue to work with us to stop this kind of violence. Every resident deserves to be safe and feel safe in their neighborhood.”

    Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee is preparing plans to have as many as 50 officers per shift to guard the streets according to the Detroit News. The city has about 2,800 officers, some of which will be pulled off administrative jobs to help Chief Godbee execute his new strategy.


    Earlier in June, the city saw shootings take place at an 8th grade graduation party and high school reunion picnic. The Detroit Free Press reports that at least 20 people were shot during another violent weekend between 6 a.m. July 29 and 6 a.m. August 1.

    Citing an NYPD analysis of stats for the first six months of the year, Kelly said Wednesday that 96% of shooting victims are black or Hispanic — and in 97% of all shootings, the trigger was pulled by other blacks and Hispanics.
