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

When surrounding just one block is enough, SWAT goes the extra mile!
No motive reported. Sounds like a quiet little town. Weird.
Good thing they banned guns.
I have a friend who lives there ... the kids have been on lockdown at school and she’s understandably anxious. I think Remington has a factory (?) there or near there, and they’re hoping that the medi-uh doesn’t attack that too.
On edit: The kids are home now.
Perhaps they were armed Wiccans looking for
I heard this guy used a shot gun but most of the media will probably leave that little nugget out....
Boy that new gun control is really working well up there.
Someone took Biden’s advice, perhaps?
I believe I worked with Michael Renshaw, the NY State Correction Officer who was killed. I retired in 2003, and haven’t seen him since that time.
It is a quiet little town on Route 5. There's a Thruway exit for it. Town named after the Herkimer family. General Nicholas Herkimer was wounded at the Battle of Oriskany (American Revolution), and died of his wounds at his home in Little Falls, NY. The home is a state historic site. Little Falls, Herkimer, and Ilion, where Remington Arms is located, are all within a short distance of each other.
No problem. Only one guy. All the SWAT team needs is one 10 round magazine. That is what the Libs tell me.
He did what the VP said. He bought a shotgun.
John Brown, of Harper's Ferry notoriety, had a farm in the Adirondacks (near Lake Placid) when he was hung for "treason" by the state (Commonwealth?) of VA.
A presidential assassin (Garfield or McKinley) was once part of the sex cult/commune in Oneida, NY.
You are WRONG! Here in NY they would only need a SEVEN round mag. Ask King Cuomo.
Ah, this is a shame, Herkimer is a nice little town that I visit about twice a year. I like going to the Herkimer Diamond Mine (looks like a tortured moonscape) and scraping around in the dirt. In fact, I have a big bag of Herkimer dirt out in my garage that I have yet to “mine”.
There really is nothing of note around there, just a simple little upstate type town. Remington is a stones throw away, and we visited there the last time we were in town.
My prayers go out to the people up there, and the friends and family of those who were killed.
I swear this is making me begin to believe the conspiracy theories about the sudden uptick in so many mass shootings.
HANGED! One is HANGED! When a person is executed by having a rope tied around his or her neck and then dropping through a trap door, that person is said TO HAVE BEEN HANGED!
Ahem. Thank you.
It's like in baseball, right? When a guy strikes out on fly balls, they say "he flied out," right?
Well, there you go.
Sorry. Sometimes I go overboard with my anger of what the Libs want to do to our rights. I do want the LEO’s to be heavily armed in a situation like this and I do feel sorry for the victims. Pointing out the hypocrisy of liberal positions on gun control is something I will continue to do but I will also say a prayer for the victims.
