LANCASTER - Authorities say a man turning over custody of his daughter to his estranged wife outside a sheriff's office shot the woman in the head and then killed himself.
The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office says Timothy Shay Sears spent the weekend with his 7-year-old daughter before meeting his wife yesterday in the sheriff's office parking lot.
Sears walked up to a car and shot Jennelle Williams Sears in the head.
The girl was also in the car and was not injured.
Authorities say Timothy Sears drove off, wrecked his truck a couple of miles away, and shot himself.
The sheriff's office says Jennelle Sears is in critical condition today at a hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The daughter is staying with family.
