Solicitor murdered

A solicitor was murdered last week in Alcobaça while following up a court order concerning the demolition of a wall. The victim, accompanied by two GNR police officers, was approaching the home of the owner of the wall when he was unexpectedly shot in the head. Paramedics were unable to reach the victim for nearly an hour due to the attacker’s aggressive attitude. The man turned himself in the following morning after being surrounded by police and special task forces.
