A British woman has been shot dead on the streets of Madrid
Spanish cops believe the 59-year-old British woman was shot dead by her partner before he went onto kill himself.
The couple found dead were alone in the property in an area called Urbanizacion Somosaguas – a gated community known as La Finca where several footballers including Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale own property from their time playing for Real Madrid.
Spain’s Equality Minister Irene Montero confirmed police are investigating the incident as a domestic violence case.
She wrote on Twitter: “All my affection and support for the family at these difficult moments.”
No further details have been released at this stage in regards to the British citizen.
AlthoughHana Jalloul, the spokeswoman for the left-wing PSOE party in Madrid’s regional Parliament, wrote on social media: “ENOUGH. We are not going to stop until we eradicate gender violence.”
