An investigation for attempted murder was opened this weekend, after shots occurred in Grigny (Essonne). The victim is a 23-year-old man. His prognosis was still engaged in the aftermath of the facts.
It is Saturday, September 23, around 22 p.m., that the emergency services and the police are called, avenue des Sablons, in the heart of Grigny 2. Firefighters discover a man on the ground, leaning against a car and conscious. The victim is bleeding and seriously injured. She was hit by gunfire: a projectile lodged in each thigh.
Plunged into a coma
In the immediate future, the man refuses to communicate his identity or the circumstances of the facts. He was transported to the Kremlin-Bicêtre hospital (Val-de-Marne), before being plunged into a coma. The caregivers then fear a fracture of the femur coupled with a hemorrhage. At the same time, police found a 9mm shell casing, used to shoot a pistol, inside a nearby hall, with dried blood nearby.
Later that evening, the name of the victim is known thanks to the young man's mother, who spontaneously presents herself at the police station. The man is 23 years old and lives in Grigny. His prognosis was still engaged Sunday. "An investigation of flagrance for attempted homicide is underway," confirms the prosecutor's office of Évry-Courcouronnes. The investigations are entrusted to the departmental security.
The track of settling accounts
On Monday, the police were still on the trail of the person or persons responsible. No arrests have taken place at this time. But everything indicates that it is a settling of scores. Against a backdrop of drug trafficking? The Avenue des Sablons, where the victim was found, is in any case known to be a point of deal. The circumstances, too, are challenging: the young man was targeted in the lower body, a "jambisation" regularly observed in the settling of scores. Finally, while he was on the ground and before the arrival of the police, a sum of money was allegedly stolen from him.
Six years ago, two brothers, residents of the Grande Borne district, were shot dead in a settling of scores. Other incidents involving firearms have occurred since then.
