A press release issued today by the Madeira Regional Command states that PSP Agent José Nelson Martins Vieira, who was hospitalised at the Nélio Mendonça Hospital in a critical situation following a gunshot incident last Sunday at the Madeira International Airport has died from his injuries.

In its statement, the Madeira Regional Command says ‘We express our sincere condolences to the son, wife, parents, brothers and other relatives and friends of our deceased comrade and we express our solidarity with his pain. We thank all the people involved in his rescue, namely the Municipal Firemen of Santa Cruz, EMIR and all the personnel of the emergency and intensive care unit of the Dr Nélio Mendonça Hospital.’  Further, sympathies are extended to all his colleagues and to the Airport Security Division employee who found José Nelson Martins Vieira lying on the floor bleeding from his wound last weekend.

Our deepest sympathies to the family.
