One Dead, One Critically Injured in
Chautauqua County Double Shooting

Police are investigating what appears to be an attempted murder and suicide in Chautauqua County.

Sheriff’s deputies got a 9-1-1 call saying a woman with a gunshot wound to the head showed up at a home on Route 5 in Westfield. Deputies learned that a man was involved in the incident and was still in the area.

While searching the area of Barcelona Beach and Marina police heard a gunshot from the area of the break wall and shore of Lake Erie, and then found 38-year-old Sam Reynolds of Lancaster, New York, dead from a single gunshot to the head.

The woman, 29-year-old Nichole Sheehan, also of Lancaster, is currently in critical condition at UPMC Hamot.

Deputies say the couple was in Barcelona to celebrate Sheehan’s birthday.
