Haute-Garonne: septuagenarian shot dead, wife suspected


The man could not be saved by the emergency services. His seriously injured wife is suspected of "intentional homicide".

A septuagenarian was killed by firearm at the family home north of Toulouse and his wife is accused of "intentional homicide", said the prosecution on Thursday.

The facts took place Wednesday afternoon, in the town of Union (Haute-Garonne). "This couple was unknown to the justice system, including for acts of domestic violence," said the prosecution.

According to La Dépêche, alerted by a relative, the emergency services could not do anything to save the victim. When they arrived, they took care of his wife, who was injured in the chest. The latter, retired, was transported to the emergency room "in serious condition", according to the firefighters who intervened.

"The accused is currently hospitalized and will be placed in police custody as soon as his condition allows," said the prosecution, without giving more details on the circumstances of the homicide.

Also according to the noon dispatch, the man was hit by two bullets. The Toulouse Saint-Michel research brigade is seized of the investigation.
