HERKIMER, N.Y. (AP) -- Police in upstate New York are searching for a suspect after shootings at a car wash and a barbershop a mile away left four people dead and at least two wounded.

State police tell Mohawk Valley local media outlets a man shot and killed two unidentified people Wednesday morning at Gaffey's Fast Lube in the village of Herkimer. Two others were killed at John's Barber Shop, in the nearby village of Mohawk.

They say a total of six people have been shot.

Herkimer Village police would only say that there was a shooting and a manhunt.

The two villages are about 65 miles east of Syracuse, on opposite sides of the Mohawk River.

Herkimer County Community College and local schools are on lockdown.
