3 shot dead in suspected murder-suicide
THREE people were shot dead in a normally quiet town in eastern England on July 19, with media reporting that a man killed his partner and daughter before turning the gun on himself.
Police said they were not looking for anyone else following the “firearms incident” near a swimming pool and sports complex in Spalding.
“Three people have been fatally wounded, including the suspected offender,” the police said.
“There is an ongoing police investigation and at this stage we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.”
The shooter was reportedly delivery driver Lance Hart, 57. He is believed to have killed partner Claire, 50, and daughter Charlotte, 19, with a shotgun, before committing suicide.
A neighbour called Mr Hart “a very nice guy – he went out of his way to be helpful”.
“He was full of the joys of spring. His kids had left home and they were going to downsize and find a bungalow in the village,” the neighbour told the Press Association. –
