NY gunman set ‘trap’ for firefighters

MULTIPLE MURDERER:A friend said William Spengler did not seem violent, but thought the 62-year-old gunman ‘went crazy’ after his mother died in October


Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn lamented the violence, which comes on the heels of other shootings including the massacre of 20 students and six adults at a school in Newtown, Connecticut.

“It’s sad to see that this is becoming more commonplace in communities across the nation,” O’Flynn said.

Grieving firefighters declined to talk to reporters. At an impromptu memorial vigil on Monday evening, about 100 people stood in the cold night air, some holding candles.
