A man opened gunfire shots at his wife on Monday leading to her eventual death in the Beirut neighborhood of Ras al-Nabaa, media reports said.

The man was identified as Fadi A.. He opened gunfire at his wife, Nada, in broad daylight in the street.

MTV said the man used a pump-action shotgun and had fired at the woman multiple blasts. She was taken to the AUBMC hospital but succumbed to her wounds shortly after, the National News Agency said.

The Lebanese Armed Forces were called to the crime scene. They tightened security measures in the area after the killer managed to flee to an unidentified location, reports said.

The suspect could not be found anywhere. Efforts to find his whereabouts continue.

Violence against women is not uncommon in Lebanon despite a law passed in 2014 making domestic violence a criminal offense.

He will surrender and claim it was a crime of "honor".
Don't look for justice in here...
