A gunman has shot dead three police officers who were called to a domestic violence incident in central France.
The suspect, 48, said to be known to authorities on child custody issues, was later found dead, officials said.
A woman had fled to the roof of a house in a remote village near Saint-Just in the early hours of Wednesday.
The gunman killed one officer and wounded another. He then set fire to the house and killed two more officers who arrived. The woman was rescued. (BBC)
