One man was killed and five others were injured in a Sunday night shooting in Marseille, about 10 pm, in the city of Rosiers in the 14th district of Marseille, reports La Provence.
The shooting took place in front of a grocery store where young people in this neighborhood are used to meeting. Thirty cases were found at the site, caliber 7.62, suggesting that the snipers were armed with Kalashnikovs. Two vehicles were found with chemin bullets from Sainte-Marthe specifies the regional diary.
Nothing allows the moment to say whether it is a reckoning in the context of drug trafficking or the result of rivalry between rival gangs, insists Xavier Tarabeux, the Marseille prosecutor, saying the investigation was entrusted to the judicial police.
No information was yet available on the identity and possible legal responsibilities of the victims, one of them in their twenties. The vital prognosis of the five injured, hospitalized at Laveran, Timone and Nord hospitals, would not be compromised.
Already 10 dead in settlement
The city of Rosiers had been the scene of a violent attack on September 15, with eight men, aged 22 to 40, shot dead in three separate cases. Five of them were hit by small arms fire as part of a rival gang fight a few meters from the city bars near Saint Barthelemy at McDonald's in the Sainte-Marthe neighborhood.
Since the beginning of the year, ten people have been killed in counting points in the Bouches du Rhône, including seven in Marseille. If the account settlement thesis is confirmed in the Sunday night shooting, it will be the eleventh death in those circumstances.
