CLYMER, NY-- Funeral arrangements have been made for the Superintendent of Clymer Schools who was found shot to death in his backyard Monday.

Calling hours will be held Thursday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. at the O'Rourke & O'Rourke Inc. Funeral Home in Salamanca.

Funeral services will be held on Friday in the United Congregational Methodist Church at 2 p.m. Reed will be laid to rest at Crawford Cemetery in Salamanca, his hometown.

Investigators are still at the home of Keith Reed, Jr, the Clymer Schools Superintendent who was found shot to death outside his house Monday.

Chautauqua County Sheriff investigators tell 2 On Your Side's Pete Gallivan, Reed, 51, suffered multiple gun shot wounds.

Meantime, investigators continue their search for clues in the case. Tuesday, deputies and volunteers searched Reed's lawn with metal detectors.  So far, only one bullet casing was found. 

Earlier, K-9s were back at the property searching for more clues in an effort to find out what happened this past weekend.

Chautauqua County Sheriff Joseph Gerace tells Pete Gallivan that even though very little information can be released at this time, this homicide does not appear to be a random act.

Grief counselors were on hand at Clymer Schools today to help children deal with Reed's death.  Reed was very popular among staff and students, as well as the community.
