WESTFIELD, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office says a woman who was shot in the head by her boyfriend, who then took his own life, has died from her injuries.
Deputies say Sam Reynolds, 38, and Nicole Sheehan, 29, both of Lancaster, traveled to Barcelona Thursday morning along Route 5 and the Lake Erie shoreline to celebrate Sheehan’s birthday.
The sheriff’s office says Sheehan fled to a residence on Route 5 after being shot in the head, and was eventually taken to Hamot Medical Center in Erie, PA.
Authorities immediately began searching for her boyfriend in the area of the Barcelona Beach and Marina when officers heard a gunshot. Deputies found Reynolds a short time later on the beach, dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Sheehan died of her injuries Friday afternoon.
