The Myanmar Times - - World -

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. –
