HERKIMER, N.Y. (AP) - New York state police say they'll keep monitoring all night an abandoned building where a man suspected of killing four people and wounding two others is holed up.
Trooper Jack Keller says they are working off the assumption 64-year-old Kurt Myers is still alive.
Police have cordoned off a block in the upstate village of Herkimer since midday Wednesday.
Police believe Myers set fire to his apartment in neighboring Mohawk and then killed two men and wounded two others at a barbershop. They say he then went to a car care shop in Herkimer and killed two more men.
A brief gunfight between Myers and police Wednesday afternoon marked the last spasm of violence and led to the standoff.
