Chilling emergency audio from NY fire, shooting

Posted: Updated:

WEBSTER, N.Y. (AP) — Emergency radio communications capture someone saying he "could see the muzzle flash coming at me" as a New York state gunman ambushed firefighters responding to a blaze he had set to trap them.

The audio draws a chilling picture of the attack police say William Spengler carried out Friday morning in the Lake Ontario community of Webster.

The audio posted on the website RadioReference.com has someone reporting "firefighters are down" and saying "got to be rifle or shotgun."

Spengler set a blaze to lure the firefighters into his ambush. He killed two and wounded two other firefighters and an off-duty police officer before killing himself.
