After six months of investigation, eight people were indicted for murder by an organized gang in connection with the double murder committed at the end of October in Pont-Saint-Esprit (Gard), the Nîmes prosecutor’s office said in a press release published on Saturday. These are seven men and a woman, all aged around twenty, who “contest their participation in these facts”. The investigating judge considered “that there is serious and consistent evidence against them,” said the prosecutor, Cécile Gensac.

In an organized group

In addition to the charge of murder by an organized gang, the investigating magistrate retained those of “attempted murder by an organized gang, carrying, transporting, possession of category A and B weapons, damage by an organized gang to property by dangerous means for people as well as participation in a criminal association with a view to committing a crime,” she added.

As a reminder, two people were shot and killed and two seriously injured on the night of October 28 to 29, 2023 in front of the terrace of a café in Pont-Saint-Esprit, a town located in the Rhône valley. Six months after the events, investigators from the Nîmes research section made 13 arrests on April 30, during a vast operation which mobilized 240 gendarmes.
