A Namibian man who is known to be a police officer shot his girlfriend and then committed suicide Wednesday at well-known shop Louis Botha in Windhoek.
The unidentified woman was rushed to the Katutura Intermediate Hospital in a critical condition after she sustained injuries from gun shots. Eyewitnesses at the scene described the deceased as a field force police officer.
“The guy just walked in the shop and started asking for the lady. We told him she was sitting in the office and he just barged into the office and closed the door. We heard gun shots and ran out of the shop,” one of the workers at the shop said.
