HERKIMER, N.Y. (AP) — The owner of an upstate New York barbershop who survived an attack by a gunman who killed four people and wounded another tells his sister the gunman walked in, asked if he remembered him and then opened fire with a shotgun.
John Seymour's sister, Mary Hornett, tells The Associated Press that Kurt Myers was a former customer who hadn't been in the barbershop in a couple of years.
Two of Seymour's customers were killed in the Wednesday morning attack in the village of Mohawk. Another survived.
Two other men were killed at a car care shop a mile away in the village of Herkimer, where police have cordoned off a neighborhood and are searching for Myers.
Police believe Myers is holed up in an abandoned building after trading shots with them.
