Two dead in Bornholm shooting

Police speculate that jealousy played a role

Two people were killed and one critically injured in a shooting incident on Bornholm on Monday night, the island's police has confirmed.

The two victims, a man and a woman, were found dead at their town house in Rønne, while the seriously injured man, 68, is not registered at that address.

“We don't know what is behind this, so I can't say anything about it at this juncture,” Peter Højgaard Jørgensen, a deputy police inspector, told TV2 News. “It could very well be a jealousy conflict. It looks like a shooting involving three people.”
