Police standoff ends with gunman dead

| No Comments

An upstate New York man police who believed to be responsible for the deaths of four people and the injuries of two was shot and killed Thursday after an overnight police standoff, NBC News said.

Kurt Myers, 64, "fired shots and law enforcement returned shots killing him," state police Superintendent Joseph D'Amico said, according to the New York Post. Myers had stayed inside a vacant bar for 19 hours before cops and FBI agents finally entered the building.

Myers began his killing spree Wednesday, shooting up a barber shop and Gaffy's Fast Lube, the New York Post said.

"This is truly an inexplicable situation," New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement Thursday, according to NBC News. "There was no apparent rational motive, to the best of our knowledge at this time, to provoke these attacks."
