One person was killed and several were seriously injured during a shooting during the night from Friday to Saturday in Sevran in Seine-Saint-Denis.

The events occurred on Friday around 11:45 p.m., in the Beaudottes district of this poor town in the Paris suburbs. When the police arrived on the scene, four injured people were on the ground, according to information from a police Source.

Despite the intervention of emergency services, one person was pronounced dead at the scene a few minutes after the shooting. The three others, whose vital prognoses were serious, were evacuated to various hospitals in the Paris region. During the night, three other gunshot wounds were hospitalized at the Aulnay-sous-Bois hospital center, a town neighboring Sevran, added the same Source.

According to initial information, two individuals arrived in a parking lot in a Peugeot 5008 car. The passenger got out of the vehicle then fired several times before fleeing, said the police Source. No arrests had taken place early Saturday morning.

Settling scores

An investigation was opened for intentional homicide by an organized gang and attempted intentional homicide by an organized gang and entrusted to the criminal brigade of the Paris judicial police.

Stéphane Blanchet, DVG mayor of the city, specified that the shooting took place in a parking lot near a cultural center. “We are not going to hide our faces: it is necessarily a settling of scores linked to drug trafficking,” reacted the elected official, contacted by telephone by AFP.

“There is a need to bring order and intervene deeply to eradicate trafficking,” he added, deploring that “the idiots who fire live ammunition do not listen to calls for calm.”
