HERKIMER, N.Y. (AP) -- Police SWAT teams and a helicopter have 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.
 
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 the suspect is still on foot somewhere. Other reports suggest he may have been picked up by a taxi.
 
A nearby college describes the gunman as being in his 60s, with a white beard and driving a red Jeep Cherokee.
