Residents of an upstate New York village are puzzled about why a 64-year-old loner went into a barbershop and opened fire in a burst of violence that would eventually leave four dead and two critically wounded.

New York state police early Thursday were waiting out suspected gunman Kurt Myers, who was holed up in an abandoned building.

Police say Myers' rampage started with a fire in his apartment in the nearby village of Mohawk Wednesday morning. He then drove to a barber shop around the corner and used a shotgun to kill two customers and wound two others. At a car care shop about a mile away, he killed two more. Police have no motive.

Resides say they barely knew Myers, who rarely spoke. One person calls him "just an odd little man."
