Ex-police officer on the run suspected of killing mother-in-law

An ex-PSP police officer in his 30s is on the run suspected of having killed his 68-year-old mother-in-law in Faro on Tuesday (March 10).

National media reports the man fired two shots through the door of an apartment where his wife lived with her mother, killing his mother-in-law and “seriously injuring” his wife. The couple’s two children are also reported to have been injured.

PSP and GNR police are now searching for the suspect.

Roads were blocked by police shortly after the shooting. Eye witnesses say the man, who was dressed in a camouflage suit, escaped the scene in an Audi A3.

It is reported that the couple was getting divorced.
