Bobigny: two bullets go through the windows and fit into the walls of two apartments


Several shots were fired on Thursday evening near the Cité de l'Abreuvoir in Bobigny. Two bullets got embedded in

Families are "traumatized" according to testimonies.

Two shots hit, on the evening of Thursday, May 13, two apartments in a building, located in the Cité de l'Abreuvoir, in Bobigny (Seine-Saint-Denis).

No injuries are to be deplored but a bullet would have landed in the room of a child according to a witness.

An investigation was opened last night "for willful violence with a weapon", indicates the Public Prosecutor's Office of Bobigny.

The police intervened around 8 p.m. Thursday evening.

During her intervention, she found the two bullet holes at the scene.

The shots are said to come from outside the city.

They went through two windows before fitting into the walls of the two apartments, located side by side on the first floor of the building.

Moreover, the weapon was not found.

"The origin of the shots remains undetermined"

For the time being, "the origin of the shots remains undetermined", specifies the Bobigny prosecutor's office.

For their part, the tenants "declared that they had no dispute with anyone" to the police.

Several avenues are being studied.

The hypothesis of a settling of scores in the street at the bottom of the building which would have caused two stray bullets is not ruled out.

The judicial police were seized of the investigation.

This is not the first time that stray bullets have ended up in apartments in Bobigny. In 2017, Kalashnikov bullets ended up in the walls of two apartments located on the 14th and 15th floors, in the Karl-Marx city. Still without causing any injuries. More seriously, in Bondy, a few months earlier, a twelve-year-old girl had been wounded in the back by a bullet which had gone through the wall of her room.
