Le Figaro Nantes
In Nantes, the weekend that has just passed was hectic. On Friday night, a streetcar driver was injured in the forearm (six stitches) by what appears to be a cutter during a brawl. Saturday night, in the district of Dervallières, a man was seriously injured after being stabbed five times. In addition to these attacks, guns also rang out twice.
The most impressive scene took place Sunday evening in the Plaisance district of Orvault, a commune bordering Nantes. Around 20 p.m., "men got out of a car," reports the Figaro a police source, before opening fire in burst in the direction of an individual who was fleeing. "He was hit in the calf," says the same source. The victim, a 28-year-old man of Algerian nationality, took refuge in an apartment in a nearby building. He was taken to Nantes University Hospital. According to France Bleu Loire Océan, his state of health does not inspire concern.
The occupants of the vehicle got back into their car before leaving the neighborhood. For the time being, no arrests have taken place. The investigation was entrusted to the judicial police of the Nantes police station. Law enforcement has physical evidence. "Shell casings of 7.62, which corresponds to the caliber of a Kalashnikov, were found," says the police source.
