AN ESTRANGED husband shot dead his in-laws and a neighbour before turning the gun on himself in the Swiss town of Wuerenlingen, on Saturday night.The town just outside Zurich has been thrust into the media by what the police describe as a serious family, but not terrorist related incident.According to the BBC, the 36-year-old gunman, who was separated from his wife and three children, shot dead his parents-in-law and brother-in-law before going to a second house and killing a male neighbour.Police found the bodies lying both inside and outside a residential building and were quick to rule out any terrorist motives, describing the deaths as a “tragic relational drama.”The gunman, who has yet to be named, had a history of violent behaviour and lived apart from his family. The wife and children of the attacker had reportedly been moved from the family home to a shelter just before the incident unfolded.
