    Fyhn said: "This was an experienced public servant with a long record of service. The background to the killing is presumed to be their relationship which broke up in recent weeks."

    He said he could not release their names, pending notification of next of kin, and that it was not immediately known whether the man had used his service weapon in the shooting.

    Police said it was not clear how many children were nearby when the shooting took place.
