A 46-year-old man shot and killed his wife before turning the gun on himself at Oshakati Thursday night.
The couple have been identified as Benyamen Shivute and the 33-year-old Annastasia Shivute.
They are said to have had a heated argument before Annastasia ran to a neighbour’s house for safety around 21h00.
“I was outside when the wife ran into my house, where the husband shot her,” the owner of the house, who asked to remain anonymous, told the media on the scene.
Sergeant Frieda Shikole-Hashiyana of the Namibian Police Force’s Public Relations Unit in the Oshana Region confirmed the incident.
“The victim ran into neighbour’s house after they had an argument and the suspect followed her and shot and killed her with a pistol before shooting himself in the head,” Shikole-Hashiyana said.
Annastasia Shivute died while being rushed to the Oshakati Intermediate Hospital.
