The killings took place at a car wash and a barber shop in Herkimer county.
Police in upstate New York’s Herkimer County are looking for a suspect wanted for killing four people and injuring two in a shooting spree in the villages of Mohawk and Herkimer.
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.
The Herkimer Telegram reported that firefighters were battling a blaze at a building in Mohawk where the suspect apparently lived. He was described as a slender white male, aged 50 to 60, sporting a white beard and wearing a flannel shirt.
He is believed to have abandoned his maroon vehicle, possibly a Jeep, that was spotted at the scene of the two shootings.
The suspect was believed to be armed with a long gun used in the killings, the Telegram reported.
The Observer-Dispatch (uticaod.com) reported that SWAT teams and a police helicopter converged on jewelry store on Main Street in Herkimer where the suspect may have taken refuge.
