The investigation quickly focused on the trail of a settling of accounts between rival groups in north-eastern Paris from two districts: Chaufourniers and Cité rouge on one side, Grange aux Belles on the other.

The rapper's car from the 19th arrondissement, a recognizable black Mercedes, is the one that knocked the young man down, but several actors in the case claim that he lent it very regularly.

Several witnesses also indicated that they had formally identified MHD on the spot, in particular by his haircut or a tracksuit from the Puma brand of which he was the ambassador.

The rapper has constantly denied the facts.
