WEBSTER, N.Y. (AP) - A western New York police chief says a gunman who entrapped and shot four volunteer firefighters outside a blazing home is dead.
Webster Police Chief Gerald Pickering says two of the firefighters were killed and two others hospitalized after the ambush on a spit of land on Lake Ontario just northeast of Rochester.
He also says the gunman is dead and an off-duty police officer who was driving by has injuries from shrapnel. One of the slain firefighters is also a town police lieutenant.
The shooting Monday morning happened in a quiet neighborhood of seasonal and year-round homes.
Police say four homes in all were destroyed and four damaged by the spreading flames.
