The events occurred this morning at a crossroads in the town of Montayral in Lot-et-Garonne. A 39-year-old man was slightly injured by buckshot. His attacker was arrested less than two hours after the incident.

It was almost 10 a.m. this Monday, May 6, when a truck driver was stopped by a car which allegedly flashed its headlights at him. According to the truck driver’s account, he then parked on the side of the road to check that his vehicle did not present any anomalies. It was then that the driver of the car allegedly shot him with a buckshot-type gun. His attacker would have immediately fled.

The driver of the truck, a 39-year-old man, was taken care of by Samu. He was evacuated to the Villenevois hospital center. Hit by pellets, his condition was not considered serious by emergency services. He allegedly claimed that he did not know his attacker.

The police immediately set up a search system around the shooting zone. Thanks to the neighborhood investigation, the hearing of witnesses and the victim, the man was arrested shortly before noon. He was placed in police custody at the Fumel gendarmerie. This is underway this Monday evening and could last up to 48 hours.
