    Rosemary Billquist (43) was shot by a neighbor while walking her dogs

    http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/24/us/new...ter/index.html
    A woman walking her dogs near her western New York home was fatally shot Wednesday by a man who told police he mistook her for a deer.

    Rosemary Billquist, 43, was hit by a bullet from a single-shot pistol fired by neighbor Thomas B. Jadlowski, said Sgt. Josh Ostrander of the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office.
    Jadlowski told investigators he was 200 yards from the victim when he fired.

    When Jadlowski realized his grave mistake, he called 911.

    Billquist was taken from the town of Sherman to a hospital in Pennsylvania where she was pronounced dead. Jadlowski, who has cooperated with authorities, has not been charged with a crime.

    Jadlowski was emotional after the shooting, the sergeant said.

    "I think he was in shock and disbelief. He was definitely having a hard time," he said.

    The woman's widower told CNN that "she was an amazing person that would do anything for anyone."

    Jamie Billquist said his wife of 27 years loved her two labs, Stella and Sugar.

    She worked at a hospital in Jamestown for 25 years and volunteered at hospices and homes for the elderly, he said.

    Ostrander said it was his understanding that Rosemary Billquist was probably on a neighbor's property when she was shot, apparently after sundown.

    New York laws prohibit the hunting of deer after sunset, Ostrander said.

    "It's the responsibility of the hunter, you have to know when sunset is," Sheriff Joe Gerace told CNN affiliate WIVB, "and plan your day so you can get out of woods before that time."


    The cynical part of me wonders if these neighbors had issues in the past.

    Remember, guns keep us safer and you can always tell who is a responsible gun owner because they will tell you they’re responsible.

    It shows the crime scene tape and you see just how close to a house it was.

    This guy may have been trying to shoot a deer, but his aim was directly at a house.

    Was that her house or his?

    I can't believe he hasn't been charged with anything. It wasnt an open field or heavily wooded area, it was a regular yard.

    I have a family member who lives near woods, and hunters have been spotted on her property, I'm afraid this is going to happen to her.

    I am convinced he shot her on purpose, with the idea that he would blame it on a hunting error. He knows he will probably get away with it in a heavy pro-hunting area. Hell, he hasn't even been charged with the obvious laws he broke at this point.

    I can't be the only one out here, I'm just not. Don't worry about it. Mind your fucking business.

    The husband said the wife took the dogs in the field right beside their house. And he also said that he was alerted when he saw the ambulance pull up. He was able to ride with them, so I think the yellow house is their house.

    The shooter did not have the property owners permission to hunt there. and it was after dark- which is an illegal time to hunt in NY. I think he was a poacher.

    Here's a map of the area.

    Criminal charges being considered against Sherman hunter who mistook woman for deer

    The Chautauqua County District Attorney is considering criminal charges against a Sherman man being investigated for fatally shooting a woman who was walking her dogs.

    Thomas Jadlowski, 34, told investigators with the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office that he thought Rosemary Billquist was a deer when he opened fire. When he heard a scream, he ran to her, called 911 and put pressure on her wounds, investigators said. Investigators said the shooting occurred after sunset, a violation of state hunting regulations.

    DA Patrick Swanson said Monday that he would be meeting with representatives from the sheriff's office and the state Department of Environmental Conservation during the day to discuss the case.

    If criminal charges are filed against Jadlowski, Swanson said, they would be either second-degree manslaughter based on reckless conduct causing death or criminally negligent homicide. Second-degree manslaughter is a C-level felony with a maximum sentence of five to 15 years in prison. Criminally negligent homicide is an E-level felony with a maximum sentence of up to four years.

    Swanson said he could not say whether the case would be brought before a grand jury, but that if it was, that information would not be made public until an arraignment.

    A hunter who fatally shot a neighbor out walking her dogs after sunset but who claimed he mistook her for a deer was charged on Thursday with manslaughter and hunting after hours.
