Police gun down 4 after Haiti president assassinated

Port-au-Prince, July 8 (TIWN) Four persons suspected of assassinating Haiti's President Jovenel Moise have been killed in a shootout with the security forces, police said.

Two others have been detained, while officers are still in combat with some remaining suspects in Haiti capital Port-au-Prince, the BBC reported citing officials.   

"They will be killed or captured," police chief Leon Charles said.  Moise, 53, was fatally shot and his wife was injured when attackers stormed their home early on Wednesday.  The unidentified gunmen entered the private residence in Port-au-Prince at 1 a.m. local time (05:00 GMT). Moise was killed, but First Lady Martine Moise survived and has been flown to Florida where she is receiving treatment.  She is reported to be in a stable but critical condition.
