HERKIMER, N.Y. (AP) — Autopsy results on a man who fatally shot four people before being killed in a police shootout show he suffered internal bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds.
State police would not reveal how many bullets hit 64-year-old Kurt Myers Thursday after police stormed the abandoned Mohawk Valley bar he fled to after the shootings. But police said Tuesday Myers suffered internal bleeding and gunshot wounds to his heart, aorta, liver, lungs and right kidney. He died at the scene.
Myers used a shotgun to kill two customers at a barber shop in Mohawk on Wednesday before killing two more at a car care shop in nearby Herkimer. Two other men wounded at the barber shop remained hospitalized Tuesday.
Investigators are asking anyone with information about Myers to call police at 315-866-7275.
