A shooting broke out on Monday, July 1st, around 10:30 p.m., in a Roma shantytown that has been established for several years on Rue Guglielmo-Marconi, in the Millénaire district of Montpellier. One man was injured.

According to our information, an armed individual burst into this makeshift camp and fired several shots. Then he deliberately hit one of the occupants, who was in a car, before fleeing.

We heard about ten explosions.

“Since 8pm, we could hear fights, things being broken, shouts. Then around 10pm, we heard about ten explosions followed by a car-ramming attack. I heard two impacts and then women screaming their heads off.”says a local resident.

The Hérault firefighters quickly intervened to fight a major garbage fire and prevent it from spreading to vegetation.

Bullet hole hits Mercedes

The police discovered bullet holes in the left rear door of a Mercedes. Was there anyone in the passenger compartment at the time of the shooting? History does not say.

“It stinks of human shit all the time”

“We’ve been living in hell for three years and we’ve been making petitions”protests Glen le Jannou, an exasperated local resident. We were not even received by the town hall, nor did we receive a response to our writings, nothing. Absolute nothingness. However, there were seventy-five petitioners, that is, all the inhabitants who surround this camp.”

“In this shanty town, there are open-air latrines three meters from our windows. It stinks of human shit all the time. There is noise all day long, calls to prayer on loudspeakers. There have been several assaults in the area, burglaries and thefts. We can’t take it anymore.”

One thing is certain, the 45-year-old driver who was hit was taken to the emergency room. His prognosis is not life-threatening. The causes of this shooting remain to be determined. The investigation is ongoing.
