    It was later determined that McLendon was armed with two high powered assault rifles, a Soviet-made SKS and a Bushmaster. He also had at least one . 38 caliber pistol, police said. He fired more than 200 rounds, police said at a news conference today.
    McLendon fired several shots at the Bradley TrueValue Hardware store before heading out of town for Geneva, 12 miles away.
