US firefighter gunman 'left note'

A man alleged to have lured two US volunteer firefighters to their deaths in Webster, New York state, left a long note outlining his plans, according to the police.

No motive was given but the note left by William Spengler, identified as the gunman, said he was planning to "do what I like doing best - killing people''.

Police searching Spengler's burnt-out house say they have found human remains, believed to be those of his sister.
