Sandra Guardiola, 48, was shot and killed earlier this month. Troopers say Canandaigua police responded to the apartment for a welfare check around 4:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 4 for Guardiola, a state parole officer. 

Troopers say Guardiola was supposed to return to work Wednesday morning, after missing two to three weeks after being hurt in a car crash in the Southern Tier, but never showed up. After coworkers were unable to get ahold of her, they went to her apartment where management called police to gain entry to her apartment.

Wednesday, investigators said Guardiola fired a shot at Kadien and he returned fire, hitting her. She was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The investigation is ongoing.
