Man Taken into Custody for Waterloo Shooting

Waterloo, NY -- A man has been taken into custody for the shooting late Tuesday night that killed two people -- and wounded a third -- in the village of Waterloo.

And there may have been a long history of abuse by the man against the woman who was killed. That's according to a friend of the dead woman who spoke this morning on The Brother Wease Show on Radio 95.1 .And the caller says the woman told the Sheriff's Office recently she feared for her life. 

The caller says the other victims -- a man who was killed and a woman who was wounded -- were the dead woman's friends. 

The suspect was found Wednesday morning at the Cheerful Valley Campground in Phelps and is being treated for what are reportedly self-inflicted wounds. Media reports identify him as Emerson Tohafjian, 48, of Fayette. He was recently released on bail from a rape arrest last month.
