The woman believed to have shot him is identified as 44-year-old Piacenta Jackson of Woodbury.

Prosecutors say Jackson then shot and killed herself near a Mantua Township business at Center and Trenton streets a short time later.



A motive for the shooting remains under investigation.

There was no word on what, if any, relationship there was between Reynolds and Jackson.
