Barbershop Shooting

Standoff Ends in Gunman's Death

A police standoff with a man accused of killing four in upstate New York ended Thursday morning when police shot and killed the suspect. Kurt Myers, 64, allegedly set his house on fire, before driving to John's Barber Shop where he pulled out a “long gun,” and began firing—instantly killing two and injuring two more. But Myers wasn't done. The "small town weirdo" then headed to a local oil-change shop, where he continued the shooting spree, taking the life of one employee. Gov. Andrew Cuomo called the unprovoked attack a “truly inexplicable situation.” No motive for the killing has been determined.Correction: An earlier version of this news summary inaccurately reported the location of the second shooting. It has since been updated.
