School run horror
A man shot his ex-girlfriend in the head at the gates of their three-year-old daughter’s primary school in Elda on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old victim was in a coma on life support at Elda hospital but state news agency EFE was informed she is brain dead with next to no chance of recovery.
Her assailant, aged 31, was killed after he got into her car and shot himself.
She had gone to pick up their daughter from Santo Negro de Elda school at about 17.10 when her expartner appeared and shot her several times in front of dozens of people.
He was convicted of assaulting her in 2016 and then on November 2 she accused him of making threats. The court imposed a precautionary restraining order that banned him from coming within 300 metres or communicating with her and he was due stand trial yesterday (Thursday).
