SWAT teams have moved in on a row of shops in upstate New York where they believe a gunman who killed four people and wounded two others may be hiding.

A black armored vehicle and a track-driven robot with a camera on top rolled up in front of Glory Days Food and Spirits in the village of Herkimer on Wednesday afternoon as officers surrounded blocks of shops topped with apartments.

They're looking for Kurt Meyers, suspected of shooting four people in his hometown, nearby Mohawk, and killing two others in Herkimer earlier in the day.

Myles Smith, who lives nearby, tells The Associated Press by cellphone he's heard police trying to talk Meyers into coming out of another building. He says there are snipers on the roof.
