On Saturday evening at 8.30 pm, a woman in Heisdorf was threatened with a shotgun by her own husband.

The woman managed to escape and to alert the police. When police officers entered the flat, the man pointed the loaded gun at them.

Luckily, officers were able to immobilise the man and to confiscate the weapon before any shots were fired.

The court ordered the man's arrest and the latter had to present himself to the coroner on Sunday morning.

During a search of the man's home, the authorities found a large amount of different types of ammunition, as well as a double-barrelled hunting rifle.
