I have found 3 similar bugs within a week. The first two were crawling on my bathroom floor and the third was on the couch. They crawl pretty fast and from what I can tell they have 6 legs. When killed, they make a popping sound (there is no blood inside). Color is reddish black.
I live in NY and these were found this month (August).

Dear Alex,
Spider Beetles like the one in your image frequently infest stored foods, including large, bargain bags of pet food.  Check items in your pantry to locate the source of the infestation.
