PSP agent found shot dead in Faro airport

A PSP agent working the nightshift at Faro airport was found shot dead on Tuesday morning.

Fernando Sousa, 48, was found with a single bullet wound to his head.

According to press reports, the shot had been made from his service revolver.

PJ police called to the scene have apparently concluded that there is no evidence of any crime having taken place.

Sousa was alone through the night, working his turn in the airport’s CCTV control room.

His death has not only left family, friends and colleagues in shock, it is understood to have highlighted the “lack of psychological support” that used to be available in the region’s now extinct “Centro de Apoio Psicológico” (centre for psychological support), writes Correio da Manhã.
