This is just awful!
Early this morning in the small town of Herkimer, NY a shooting rampage ended with a dead gunman, four dead victims and one dead FBI dog!
He then shot two more people to death at an oil change place. Two more people were shot elsewhere but they survived.
The man eventually holed up in a building's basement in Herkimer.
The police sent in an FBI dog to sniff out the suspect and that's when the dog was sadly killed. Then the cops moved in.
A state trooper said:
"He was waiting for us. Our teams returned fire and the suspect gets shot."
The reason for the shootings is unknown.
It's just so terrible that so many people and a poor doggy had to die!
