Man used shotgun in Wales due too trauma over ex – wife
A man who walked into a hair salon and shot his ex – wife was suffering after the “ traumatic “ break-up of the marriage and needed medical attention, his family said.
The man fled after the shooting and was found dead in woodland five hours earlier. The man used a double – barreled shotgun in the attack on his estranged wife in the hair salon where she worked.
His family said he had been suffering for the last few weeks and “desperately” needed professional help.
His unnamed ex-wife suffered an injury to her knee and her condition has been described as stable by the hospital. Two other women who were also injured in the attack have since been released from hospital.
The man had gone to the hair salon to confront his ex – wife about their separation.
He did not have a shotgun licence but was said to enjoy hunting.
