Man Shoots Self To Death During Fight With Wife

A 52-YEAR-OLD man from New Cranborne shot himself to death on Tuesday after a domestic dispute with his wife.

Pasipamire Kanyimo, 46, allegedly shot himself on the left side of his head just above the ear after a disagreement with his wife, Virginia Kanyimo.

According to sources, Virginia told Pasipamire that she was losing affection for him and desired a divorce.

This did not sit well with Pasipamire, and the two fought in their marital bedroom.

According to the source, Pasipamire shot himself after leaving Virginia unconscious.

Pasipamire was reportedly struggling to provide for his family, leaving that burden to Virginia.
