Police: Parole officer shot 3 times at Canandaigua apartment

CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - State Police have released more details on the death of a state parole officer who was shot by a Canandaigua police officer.

On Oct. 4, state parole officer Sandy Guardiola, 48, was shot and killed at her Pinnacle North apartment. Troopers say there was a brief conversation between her and Sergeant Scott Kadien before gunfire was exchanged. 

In a press conference on Friday, police said when Kadien knocked on Guardiola's apartment door, he identified himself and entered. Police said Kadien found the bedroom door closed. He identified himself again, and saw Guardiola in bed. Kadien allegedly left the room, and when he re-entered, Guardiola was holding a gun. 

Investigators said Guardiola fired first, striking a wall, and Kadien took cover by the bedroom door. Guardiola then came out of her room with a gun, and that's when Kadien fired, according to police.

She was shot three times in the stomach, arm, and neck.

The family of Guardiola will be speaking for the first time about the shooting Saturday. The family will be joined by Reverend Al Sharpton at the National Action Network's House of Justice in Harlem. 

Guardiola's family claims she was sleeping when she was shot.

Kadien has returned to work and has been assigned an administrative role within the department. He will continue in that assignment until the investigation by the State Police has been completed.
