A police officer shot his ex-girlfriend dead then critically wounded himself at the Norwegian school where she worked today.

Police said the incident took place in a car park between the Slettaelva elementary school and a nursery in Tromso.

Police initially said both victims had died, but Tromso Police Chief Truls Fyhn later said the 53-year-old man remained in "extremely critical condition" at a local hospital.

Mr Fyhn said the woman, who was in her early 40s, had been living with the police officer until they broke up last week.

Neither are being identified until relatives have been told of the tragedy.
