Authorities are looking for a man suspected of killing four people and wounding at least two others in Herkimer County in upstate New York, state police said Wednesday.

The suspect, identified by state police as Kurt Meyers, also is believed to have blown up his house in the area, located about 70 miles west-northwest of Albany, according to a federal law enforcement source briefed on the investigation.

The shootings were reported Wednesday morning in the neighboring communities of Herkimer and Mohawk, CNN affiliate WKTV reported.

    Blowing up his own house, shooting spree, deaths. Is this the norm now?

      I'm just checking in to let you know all is well in Herktown, which is the center of Herkimer county. As far as all the house explosions, we're just trying to keep things popping.
      Have you heard from my friend Thelma Lou ? It's been ages since I talked to that southern sweetie.

    I wonder how many rounds were in his weapon??? I hope he obeyed the new gun law in NY.
    As predicted... that law is just smoke and mirrors.

    This is getting to be an every day occurence in on area or another. What the hell is the matter with people ? And they say we need more guns out there to make everyone safer. That sounds like a brilliant strategy to me.

      You clearly don't know much about Herkimer. Even my gun loving Texan Brother in Law would not think you would NEED a firearm on you at Gaffey's Jiffy Lube 10 am on a Wednesday. Main st after dark? Maybe, but not a place like gaffey's. And no, they would not burn the building down. It's an old building connected to a block of more old buildings on the Main St in town.

    Unarmed also I would imagine.
