  • Debbie Zurick died at the scene of the shooting

In a now-deleted Q&A on the Working Clumber Spaniel Society website - which says the group works to "maintain the Clumber spaniel as a natural working gundog" - John Zurick spoke about how he had trained a dog for Princess Anne.

He is in police custody and is receiving emergency treatment in a Devon hospital, where he is in a critical but stable condition. She was a neighbour and she was much loved.

Stanley Johnson said his family was "shocked, stunned and saddened" by the death of Mrs Zurick.

Licensed weapons had been seized by police from the home belonging to a couple who are at the centre of a double shooting investigation. "She was honorary secretary of the Working Clumber Spaniel Society and was much loved for the work she did, in the society and in Exmoor and beyond".

The pair, who were understood to have recently separated, lived next to the rural estate of Stanley Johnson, the father of PM Boris.

Debbie Zurick was named locally as the victim and her husband John Zurick, 67, is in hospital with gunshot wounds following the shooting.

The Zuricks were regulars at video game fires as well as were essential numbers in the Working Clumber Spaniel Society, of which Princess Anne is head of state.

Friends of the pair stated Mrs Zurick had actually ended up being "annoyed" with her partner as well as transferred to a close friend's home in Ireland "to escape all of it".

Mr Zurick had hoped for a reconciliation and was deeply upset when he discovered his wife had a new boyfriend.

Last evening Avon as well as Somerset Police stated it had actually referred itself to the cops guard dog over "previous cops call with those included". Firearms officers reportedly attended and performed CPR on Debbie, but she was tragically pronounced dead at the scene.

Mrs Zurick, who is said to have been treated for cancer, is believed to have been shot when she returned to the cottage on Saturday with a female friend to collect some possessions and take care of the dog breeding business. He'd suffered serious injuries caused by a shotgun.

One friend said John "did not seem to be coping very well" with the split.

'Things came to a head over the last couple of weeks.

'A post-mortem examination has been carried out on the woman and the cause of death has been confirmed as shotgun injuries. I've been informed that she's dead which is such awful information- specifically as she appeared to be recuperating well from cancer cells therapy.'.

Another neighbor stated: 'Debbie was prominent around right here.

Mr and Mrs Zurick had no children. The police haven't told us anything.

Det. Supt. Julie Mackay, of the Major Crime Investigation Team said: 'This is a very serious incident in which a woman has lost her life and we are deploying family liaison officers to support the next of kin.

'Due to prior police contact with those involved, a mandatory referral has been made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct. We are just in shock, it's bad'.

"It would be inappropriate for us to go into further details while the referral is being considered".
