Firefighters Shot and Killed While Responding to an Emergency


Police are not sure what was going on during a fire in upstate New York, where at least two firefighters have been killed while responding to an emergency call.  In addition to the two who were killed, two others have been injured, according to police.

The incident took place in Webster, New York and authorities are baffled. After the firefighters got out of their vehicles, two shooters aimed at them.

“We have different individuals that were possible people with knowledge, but at this point I can’t really comment,” Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn told reporters.

The fire was left to burn since the other firefighters were forced to leave the area.  Police SWAT teams had to evacuate homes as well.

“It’s still an active crime scene,” a spokesperson said. “We have firefighters there at the location. It took a while to make it safe … to put out the fires.”

It is not clear whether there are any suspects in this shooting.

    at least 7 homes burned to ground bc the area wasn't safe after 2 firefighters were killed and several others wounded by firestarters, wow? No one anywhere is safe especially the innocent, tragic!!

    • The shooter set the initial fire but the firefighters could not put it out because of the shootings so the fire spread to rest of the houses. This mayhem was caused by one craazy who is dead from a self-inflicted wound. I pray for the families because Christmases will never be the same for them with this awful memory they have to live with.

  2. Is the NRA, going to send out armed policemen, on every fire emergency?. Those people who run the NRA, are the stuppedist people in America.That is all we need more gun swinging fools in this country.Murder and voilence sound good on the tv evening news. Bad news do sell, and make great headlines. Make everbody afraid to leave their homes. Come to think of it, this may work, if people are not going out. The creminals, would have to come to your homes to rob us. This way we can kill the creminals and claim home invasion.

    • They just found his sister's remains in the house he lived in and seven houses total burned to the ground. He left a note stating he set the fire to bait first responders in the fire dept. and police department to do what he enjoys best killing people. He also killed his ninety year old grandmother back in the eighties almost thirty years ago. He was a sick man and we have many more people out in the world with the same mentality. Scarrrey World!!
