A shooting broke out Thursday evening in Aussillon, a small town in Tarn, causing two serious injuries, according to a source close to the investigation.
The facts took place around 11:30 p.m. on the market square, near a group of buildings.
"Exchanges of shots took place, there were three wounded, two of whom were serious," said the mayor of Aussillon, Fabrice Cabral.
The two seriously injured, one of whom was shot in the lung and the other in the arm, were transferred to a hospital in Toulouse.
The vital forecasts of the two seriously injured, two men of 32 and 41 years are no longer engaged, according to the Dépêche du Midi.
The third injured, a 30-year-old man, was hit by a shot.
A suspect located?
Investigators were on Friday looking for the suspected gunner (s) and the vehicle in which they fled.
The police are trying to determine the circumstances of the shooting, using CCTV images of this town of 6,000 inhabitants, adjacent to Mazamet.
They wonder about a possible link between the shots and a violent argument which arose around 9 p.m. in Aussillon.
Also according to La Dépêche, the search and intervention brigade (BRI) intervened in a building above the market place to arrest a suspect in the early morning.
