Police kill suspect in deadly NY shooting rampage

(Continued)

Cangee's owner Candy Rellin called Myers "just an odd little man."

The two villages are about 65 miles east of Syracuse on opposite sides of the Mohawk River — which connects the Erie Canal to the Hudson River and from there, the sea — in a region known as the Mohawk Valley.

Elizabeth Cirelli was shocked by Stefka's slaying. He was a neighbor in Herkimer.

"He was a great guy, a really nice person. This is horrific. We really couldn't believe it," she said.

Herkimer County Community College lifted a lockdown during the afternoon, and schools near the scene released students. D'Amico said most of the three-block neighborhood around the search scene was evacuated.

Herkimer is a village of 7,700 named for the German immigrant family that settled in the western Mohawk Valley in the 1720s. The economically distressed villages are 2 miles away from Ilion, where a 2-century-old Remington Arms gun plant is a major employer.
