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).
