4 Killed In Shooting Spree

4 Killed In Shooting Spree, SWAT teams have moved in on a jewelry store in upstate New York where a man accused of killing four people and wounding two others is in hiding.

The Herkimer Police Department confirmed that the suspect fired shots at police officers.

A black armored vehicle and a track-driven robot with a camera on top rolled up in front of Glory Days Food and Spirits in the village of Herkimer on Wednesday afternoon as officers surrounded blocks of shops topped with apartments.

They're looking for Kurt Myers, suspected of shooting four people in his hometown, nearby Mohawk, and killing two others in Herkimer earlier in the day.

Myles Smith, who lives nearby, tells The Associated Press by cellphone he's heard police trying to talk Myers into coming out of another building. He says there are snipers on the roof.

Schools are still on lock down, but parents are able to go to the schools to pick their children up.
