The man handed himself into police in the early hours of yesterday morning. Witnesses say they heard several shots.

The woman and children moved into the apartment a few months ago after she left her husband. Neighbours say they were always arguing and smashed things.

The man is known to be a keen gun owner and had licences for several hand guns. But police are not confirming one of the guns he owned was used in the killing.
