GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – A man in his 80s was shot and killed by Geneva police and a police officer was shot in the face during an exchange of gunfire in the Servette district in Geneva, in the early hours of Tuesday.
A woman in her 60s, reported by local media to be the wife of the elderly man, was found dead inside their apartment. The couple appear to have had a dispute before shots were fired.
Police were called to the scene shortly after 03:00 by neighbours who reported hearing cries and gunfire. They faced a man who threatened to commit suicide, according to the Tribune de Genève, but then opened fire, injuring three officers. The one shot in the face is in stable condition.
