The facts took place a few meters from a high place of drug trafficking in Nantes, which has experienced several settlings of scores in recent weeks.

“We have not escaped the industrialization of drug trafficking.

And when this trafficking took on significant proportions, the weapons circulated, ”said the mayor of Nantes in the evening.

“Today, the financial stakes are such that nothing scares them anymore.

We are facing behaviors of violence never seen before,” she lamented.

Johanna Rolland described the situation as "serious", according to Presse Océan, and assured that it was necessary "to go up a notch".

"Nantes needs even more reinforcements from national police," she insisted.
