Four volunteer firefighters responding to an intense pre-dawn house fire were shot Monday morning, two fatally, leading to a shootout between a suspect and police in suburban Rochester, NY, police said.
"One or more shooters" fired at the firefighters when they arrived shortly after 5:30AM at the blaze near the Lake Ontario shore, just east of Rochester, Town of Webster Police Chief Gerald Pickering said.
The first Webster police officer who arrived exchanged gunfire with a shooter, Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O'Flynn said. Police would not give details on the whereabouts of a suspect, with O'Flynn saying only there was no active shooter at the scene later Monday morning.
The two wounded firefighters were in critical condition at a Rochester hospital, O'Flynn said.
The West Webster Fire District early Monday received a report of a car and house fire on Lake Road, on a narrow peninsula where Irondequoit Bay meets Lake Ontario, O'Flynn said.
The fire started in one home and spread to three others and a car, officials said. The gunfire initially kept firefighters from battling the blazes, but they eventually did late Monday morning.
Update: Shooter is dead.
