METROPOLITAN INFO/ This Sunday, July 7, 2024, around 5 p.m., during a routine round in the city of Saint-Martin, at Montpelliera police patrol caught teenagers making cocktails Molotov.


According to our information, confirmed this Monday, July 8, by a source close to the investigation, six small explosive devices artisanal were in the possession of the miners, whose exact number has not been specified: they had introduced paper which would have served as a wick into each bottle of beer filled with gasoline or alcohol.

It was in this city and not far from where these young people were making these Molotov cocktails that a 21-year-old resident was the victim of a attempted voluntary homicide by firearmon the evening of Friday July 5, between the streets Jean Vachet and des Catalpas, at the foot of the Saint-Martin tower.

9mm and 7.65 calibers

The victim, who lives 60 meters as the crow flies from rue Jean Vachet, where his car was targeted by two shooters with 7.65 and 9mm handguns, was seriously injured and is out of danger. This twenty-year-old – who had a walkie-talkie in his vehicle – was awaited by the two hooded and gloved shooters, while he was on his way to the night grocery store near the Saint-Martin tower. Although seriously injured by two projectiles, conscious, he was able to park and wait for help.

Since the events, he has been able to be heard by investigators from the federal police who favor a settling of scores against a backdrop of drug trafficking, around a drug dealing point in this city.

On the other hand, according to our information, the police would exclude on Monday, any link between this attempted murder and the preparation of Molotov cocktails by the six minors, which they apparently intended to set alight and throw towards a polling station open for the early legislative elections. They were taken to the central police station for questioning.
