Husband kills wife and new partner after opening fire inside packed courthouse

A man opened fire in a packed courthouse, killing his wife and her new partner, before turning the gun on himself today.

The victims were killed on the eighth floor of the building in Durban, South Africa. It is believed the wife and her new boyfriend died while the shooter is critically injured.

According to South African media, the fatal shooting stemmed from a domestic legal case involving the estranged couple. The gunman opened fire when the presiding magistrate was out on a tea break, local reports suggest.
