The New York man killed by police after a shooting rampage that left four people dead was a mystery in a small town.

People in and around the upstate village of Herkimer describe 64-year-old Kurt Myers as a virtual stranger to his neighbors and a man of few words.

His motive for shooting two people dead at a barber shop and following with two more killings in a car service shop in a neighboring town is a mystery.

Myers has family in the area, but police say their interviews have provided few clues.

A former boss who worked with Myers for 20 years remembers him as quiet and intelligent. But he says he seemed "spooky" during a recent chance encounter in a store parking lot.
