On Wednesday, UK police initiated a search for a suspect who may possess a crossbow, following the suspected “targeted” attack that resulted in the deaths of the wife and two daughters of a BBC radio racing commentator in Bushey, north of London. Kyle Clifford, 26, from north London, is sought in connection with the incident occurring on Tuesday night.

The BBC confirmed on its news website that the victims were Carol Hunt, the 61-year-old wife of BBC Five Live racing commentator John Hunt, and their two daughters, aged 25 and 28. Local police responded to a house in the town where they pronounced the three women dead at the scene.

Chief Superintendent Jon Simpson stated that armed officers and specialist search teams were actively involved in the manhunt, urging Clifford to contact the police. He also warned the public not to approach Clifford.

Simpson called it “a horrific incident involving what is currently believed to be a crossbow, but other weapons may also have been used”.

Interior Minister Yvette Cooper described the deaths as “truly shocking” and stated that she was receiving updates about the inquiry. One neighbor informed the reporter that the victims were a friendly family.

“We would see them every day passing by and they would say good morning,” she said. “It’s really sad what’s happened, very shocking.”

In the UK, owning a crossbow does not require a license, but it is illegal to carry one in public without a reasonable excuse.
