4 people dead: suspected murders, suicide being investigated by Erie County Sheriff’s Office

Two men were found dead at the Ten X Shooting Club outdoor range in the Town of Newstead. Two women were killed at two other crime scenes.

ERIE COUNTY, N.Y. — The Erie County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a suspected murder and suicide involving two men at the Ten X Shooting Club outdoor range in the Town of Newstead, along with two women killed elsewhere.

Undersheriff Bill Cooley says he was alerted to the killings around 11 a.m. Thursday.

Cooley says two women were found dead at other scenes, and that all four who were killed are related.

The sheriff's office has not shared any details on the other scenes or released any names or ages.

"On a normal basis, the traffic that comes through here, people come from everywhere. That's the shootout here," a neighbor said. "So any given day, you don't know who's going to be here.

"Unfortunately, whatever took place here is definitely unfortunate, and I hope people start opening their eyes and realizing what's going on around them. Basically, if you hear something, say something. If you see something say something."

The investigation is ongoing. 2 On Your Side also reached out to the Ten X Shooting Club but did not immediately receive a response.

For now, the 2.5-acre shooting range will remain closed.
