HERKIMER, N.Y. (AP) - Police say they're searching an upstate New York village after exchanging fire with a man suspected of killing four people and wounding two others.

State police Superintendent Joseph D'Amico says SWAT teams and other officers were fired on from an abandoned building in Herkimer early Wednesday afternoon while looking for 64-year-old Kurt Myers.

Police say Myers' rampage started with a fire in his apartment in the nearby village of Mohawk at about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. They say he then used a shotgun shot to shoot four people, two fatally, at a barbershop around the corner before killing two more at a Herkimer oil change and car wash business.

About 1:30 p.m., a flurry of gunfire was heard near where police had narrowed their search.
