Webster Gunman: ‘What I Like Doing Best, Killing People’


webster-gunman-william-spenglerPolice In Webster, N.Y., say the man who lured firefighters to their deaths in a blaze of gunfire left a typewritten note saying he wanted to burn down the neighborhood and “do what I like doing best, killing people.”

Webster Police Chief Gerald Pickering said Tuesday that the man’s sister hasn’t been found yet. He said 62-year-old ex-convict William Spengler armed himself with three weapons and set his house afire to lure first responders into a death trap.

Spengler killed himself as seven houses burned around him Monday.

Spengler killed volunteer firefighter and police lieutenant Michael Chiapperini, 34, and firefighter Tomasz Kaczowska. He wounded firefighters Joseph Hofsetter and Theodore Scardino, who were both hospitalized in serious condition.

Police said Spengler was using a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle – the same gun as used by the gunman in the Newtown massacre. He was also armed with a .38 revolver and a shotgun.

Spengler previously served 17 years for manslaughter in the death of his grandmother. He was jailed until 1998, and on parole until 2006.
