DA: Gunman in deadly Herkimer rampage had 95 rounds left


HERKIMER, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say the man who fatally shot four men in neighboring upstate New York villages last week still had 50 rounds on him and another 45 in his vehicle parked outside the building where he was killed in a shootout with police.
The Observer-Dispatch of Utica reports that Herkimer County District Attorney told county legislators Wednesday night that police found the ammunition on Kurt Myers' body and inside his vehicle after he was shot last Thursday morning inside a vacant building in Herkimer, ending a 19-hour standoff.
The 64-year-old Myers fired at police as they approached the small room where he was holed up. Myers killed an FBI dog before police returned fire, hitting him multiple times.
Myers killed four men and wounded two others during last week's shootings in Mohawk and Herkimer.
