Horror in Faro as man kills wife in café

“You want a divorce, do you?” were the words shouted by the man who is understood to have fatally shot his wife this afternoon (May 28) at a Faro café just yards from the town’s police station.

Clients watched in horror as the 31-year-old is described as having shot his wife four times with a shotgun.

PSP police commissioner Maria Viola told the Resident that the dead woman worked at the café.

PSP police alerted to the horror arrived at the scene as the man was apparently reloading his weapon.

Commissioner Viola added that the dead woman had just started working at the café, after separating from her husband, who lived in Matosinhos.

PJ police are now investigating as the man remains in police custody.
