Suspect in police slaying arrested in Spain

Spanish authorities arrested a suspect Friday in the killing of two national police officers and a third person, all of whom were shot at a country house in eastern Spain. The suspect, who police described as “a citizen of Serbian origin by the name of Norbert Feher,” was taken into custody in the rural Teruel province where the triple slaying happened, local authorities said.

Police said he was arrested in the early hours in possession of three firearms, two belonging to the slain officers. Investigators were still working to establish a motive for the shooting at an isolated home on Thursday, but local official Gustavo Alcade said the alleged killer was already being sought by police for a previous shooting.

The earlier incident, ten days ago, involved an intruder breaking into a country house and wounding the owner as well as another person, according to local press reports. Several Italian Media said the man was nicknamed “Igor the Russian” and wanted in Italy for two killings last April near Bologna.
