Sean Armstead, 36, of New York, is accused of following his wife Alexandra Vanderheyden, 35, to a hotel where she was with Edward Wilkins, 20, before murdering the lover and shooting himself.

According to reports, a police officer chased his wife and her young boyfriend to a hotel before shooting his opponent and turning the pistol on himself following a car pursuit.

When detective Sean Armstead, 36, tracked down his partner Alexandra Vanderheyden, 35, in a La Quinta Inn in Wallkill, New York, where she was with Edward Wilkins, 20, the love triangle came to a horrible conclusion.

Around 10.30 p.m. last Sunday, the two lovers fled the hotel in a car, with Armstead after them.

According to reports, Armstead slammed his car into theirs near a traffic junction near a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant.

Mr. Wilkins then exited his vehicle and attempted to flee, but Armstead shot him 16 times, killing him from injuries to his back and head, according to New York Post sources.

Armstead, who joined the NYPD in 2011, is claimed to have then reloaded his weapon and shot himself, leaving his wife unharmed in the bloodbath.

“It happened outside,” a Buffalo Wild Wings manager told the New York Post. “The night manager told me she kept everyone inside and locked the doors. We closed early last night. I don’t even think they came in here.”

The purported murder-suicide is being investigated by police.

A hotel visitor who was staying nearby described the shocking encounter.

She said: “I heard eight shots. The cop shot him multiple times until he was dead. Then the cop, in shooting himself, landed on top of the body. They were both on top of one another in the same spot in a pool of blood.

“The woman was screaming and running in and out of Buffalo Wild Wings. She was crying hysterically, it looked like she was going to pass out.

“People were still there cleaning up the blood at 4:30am.”

The families concerned, according to Ms. Vanderheyden’s brother Joseph, have suffered a tragedy.

“This has been a very devastating tragedy for the victims and the families involved,” he told the Daily Mail.

“Our family in particular has been directly impacted by the traumatic events that occurred.”
