Investigators are learning more about the shooting at the scene of a Christmas Eve fire in upstate New York that killed two firefighters and wounded two others.

FOX News Radio's Ron Flatter reports:

The gunman who torched his neighborhood in suburban Rochester, New York before his murder-suicide left behind a chilling message.

(Pickering) "I still have to get ready to see how much of the neighborhood I can burn down, and do what I like doing best: killing people."

Webster, New York Police Chief Gerald Pickering reading the note left by ex-con William Spengler.  Officers say Spengler shot firefighters, killing two of them.  Later, police found a body at Spengler's house.

(Pickering) "The assumption is that it is the shooter's sister."

The 62-year-old Spengler had previously served prison time for killing his grandmother.
