(CBS/AP) HERKIMER, N.Y. - Police in upstate New York may have located the suspected gunman in shootings Wednesday morning at a car wash and a barber shop that left four people dead and at least two others wounded, the Utica Observer-Dispatch is reporting.

According to the publication, police believe the suspect may be in Freddy's Jewelers on Main Street in Herkimer. SWAT teams and a police helicopter had reportedly arrived on the scene.

State police told local media outlets a man shot and killed two unidentified people Wednesday at Gaffey's Fast Lube in the village of Herkimer. Two others were reportedly killed at John's Barber Shop in the village of Mohawk, about a mile away. They said a total of six people had been shot.

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

The Observer-Dispatch also reported that police were seen removing about half a dozen long guns from an apartment building in Mohawk where a fire had broken out around 9:30 a.m. The building is around the corner from the barbershop.

Local schools were on lockdown in the villages, about 65 miles east of Syracuse.
