GAFFNEY | Authorities have identified a man killed by North Carolina police as the killer they think shot five people to death over six days last week in this mostly rural Cherokee County community.

Law enforcement officials identified the suspect Monday night as 41-year-old Patrick Tracy Burris. They said he was a felon with a lengthy record who was paroled in April after serving more than eight years for felony breaking and entering and larceny.

Authorities said bullets in the gun found on Burris after he was killed by police early Monday near Gastonia, N.C., matched those used to kill residents in and around Gaffney, some 40 miles away.

Pretty close to home for me. I lived in Charlotte a few years back and Gaffney is not far away. I'm glad justice has been done.

Jabar Gaffney's dead?

Yep. Apparently John Goodman, Jeff Goldblum and Jabar Gaffney were all liquored up and about to engage in a Mexican shootout when Hootie and the Blowfish's Plane came crashing down on them.

No survivors.
