CHICLANA – A boyfriend shot his teenage girlfriend dead then killed himself, police said Monday.
The bodies of the two lovers were found in a house in Chiclana, near Cadiz, in south-western Spain.
This brings the number of women killed in domestic violence in Spain this year to 29.
The 24-year-old boyfriend, who was named only as David, shot his 19-year-old girlfriend Noelia then turned the gun on himself in her parents' home.
The woman's body was found in the bathroom, while the man's body was in the passageway.
Police later said there were 'numerous' signs of bullet-holes around the house.
Police believe he followed her round the house, trying to shoot her.
Eventually, he killed his terrified girlfriend in the bathroom.
The pair had been going out for eight months, according to neighbours.
They appeared happy together. But his family had recently suffered a tragedy with the death of a brother in a traffic accident and the suicide of a grandfather.
The bodies were found Sunday afternoon by the woman's father.
The pair had spent the previous night in the girl's parents' home near Chiclana.
Neighbours had earlier heard shooting from the home.
