Budapest, October 26 (MTI) – A policeman has been reported as having been shot dead in north-west Hungary on Wednesday, according to local media.
A medic at a hospital in the city of Győr told MTI that the suspect in the case, a 74-year-old man, was being treated at the hospital.
MTI’s correspondent at the scene, in the village of Bőny, saw several dozen police officers and counter-terrorism (TEK) personnel surrounding a house.
MTI contacted the county police headquarters and the TEK but both declined to comment.
According to press reports, the male suspect is the founder of a far-right organisation. It is reported that he received a suspended prison sentence in the 1990s for spreading Nazi-type propaganda.
Police had sought to carry out a search of his property because it was suspected that he had kept illegal firearms, according to reports.
