    Police converge on Herkimer, New York jewelry store after deadly shooting spree

    Published March 13, 2013
    Police SWAT teams converged on a jewelry store in one of two upstate New York villages where four people were killed and at least two others wounded in separate shootings.
    Authorities have identified the suspect as Kurt Meyers, 64, of Mohawk. He is considered armed and dangerous and still on the loose in Herkimer, police say.
    Officials say guns and ammunition were found inside his apartment after emergency crews were sent to a fire there Wednesday morning.
    The Utica Observer-Dispatch reports that police are focusing on Freddy's Jewelers on Main Street in Herkimer, where two people were fatally shot at a car wash and oil change business.
    The newspaper reports that officials in the neighboring village of Mohawk, where two other people were killed in a barbershop, seem to think Meyers is still on foot somewhere.
    Other reports suggest he may have been picked up by a taxi.
    The two villages are about 65 miles east of Syracuse, on opposite sides of the Mohawk River in a region known as the Mohawk Valley.

    A few pics from the scene. Holy mother fuck. This is the reason the rest of you aren't allowed to have nice toys.

    I'm no Eotech expert, but I think you're right!! They might be the XPS2 model, and it definitely appears backwards.

    Yup, its backwards which is probably why he had his BUIS flipped up. Bet its not even zeroed. Numbnuts like this and the chick who had her mag in backwards are the reason there aren't more patrol rifles out. Imagine if this dickwad actually had to shoot it! How does he qualify with that, and how did nobody else point it out?!?

    I do notice he has Magpul mags tho;). How the fuck do you insert a mag backwards? Its been awhile since I got to finger a rifle, but I thought there was guide milled into the receiver that prevented the mag from going in any way but the correct way.

    Great moments in police gun-handling

    Seen at PDB’s who notes: at least she’s observing Rule 3.
    And my personal favorite, Mr. Big Arms with his Aimpoint weapon sight mounted backwards:

    Just goes to show, toys are all well and good, but the key to real effectiveness is training. Just make sure to mention that to chiefs who call a couple mags out at the sand pit with the AR "patrol rifle certification".

      HERKIMER, N.Y. – Authorities in upstate New York say the suspected gunman in a rampage at a car wash and a barbershop that left four people dead and two wounded has been killed by police Thursday morning in a shootout.
    Kurt Myers, 64, was killed by police who had surrounded a block of small businesses in the village of Herkimer since Wednesday afternoon.
    Elite police teams went into the building around 8 a.m. local time, trooper Jack Keller said. The shootout occurred in the basement.
    Keller said police sent in the dog first and Myers shot and killed it.

    "He was waiting for us," Keller said. "He kills the dog. They hear shots fired. Our teams returned fire and the suspect gets shot."

    Its good they put this guy down, but a shame about the K-9. Note; he probably was not shot by the guys with backwards Eotechs.

    BTW, how is this possible after the extensive anti-gun laws New York just passed?

    Also, the news reports said he used a shotgun....I guess he listened to Biden...

    1. He was obviously a despondent "Gun Nut", secret-militia, NRA member, republican, upset with having had to sell his AR-15's.
    2. Next on the list will be the awful "shotguns". Because the libtards will say "who needs a weapon that can kill so many people just waiting innocently for a haircut, or an oil change"

    Both pictures...its the same guy. The battery compartment on the Eotech is in the front of the sight - not the back.
