Two policemen, and one of their sons, shot dead in Portugal barking-dog row

Three people, including two police officers, have been shot dead and another wounded after a domestic row in Portugal.

A 77-year-old man is said to have opened fire after a row over a barking dog in Quinta do Conde, 30 kilometres south of the capital Lisbon.

A plainclothes officer who lived in the area was shot dead as he ran to investigate, and a patrol officer then called to the scene was shot in the head and killed.

The third victim was reportedly the son of the plainclothes officer who was trying to help his father.
