Spanish municipal leader dies after being shot in León

Police officers take away the body of late Leon provincial council chief Isabel Carrasco on a stretcher on May 12, 2014.

Isabel Carrasco, the conservative People's Party president of the county council of León in northern Spain, was shot dead today while walking through León city, Spanish police said.

They said they had arrested a woman and her daughter in connection with the shooting of Carrasco, 58, the elected chief administrator of the northern province whose centre-right party heads the national government in Madrid.

"We're still investigating possible motives but have ruled out terrorism," a police source said. Spain's Interior Ministry was looking into personal revenge as the most likely motive for the attack, Spanish media reported.

Spain's People's Party, which is in the midst of the European Union parliamentary election campaign, suspended all events for Monday and Tuesday following the shooting.
