“We received an alert for domestic violence, already referring to a homicide followed by suicide. When we arrived at the scene, a 56-year-old woman had already been declared dead. A 51-year-old man was still given immediate life support manoeuvres, but eventually died on the scene” said Rui Costa, second commander of the Famalicenses Fire Department.

The same source added that the case is being investigated by the Judiciary Police.

According to a source from Braga District Relief Operations Command, at 9:15 am, two people were found dead at home, suspecting that "one man killed his wife and then killed himself."

According to the Civil Protection website, the “suicide / homicide” took place in Gondifelos, Famalicão and 11 men and six vehicles were mobilised for the site.
