ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo is praising the law enforcement officers who ended an armed standoff with the suspect in the Mohawk Valley shooting rampage by killing the man after he opened fire on them.
Cuomo praises the efforts of police in ending what he calls Wednesday's "horrific spree of violence and bloodshed" in the neighboring villages of Mohawk and Herkimer.
The governor says officers entered a building in Herkimer Thursday morning and killed 64-year-old Kurt Myers after he shot and killed an FBI dog. Authorities say the shootout occurred in the basement where Myers had been holding out since soon after police say he killed four men and wounded two others in separate shootings at two businesses.
