He was 67 years old and came to visit Brittany.

On Saturday, he was hit by a 9.3mm caliber bullet while driving on the RN157 between Nantes and Rennes.

Seriously injured, the motorist from Maine-et-Loire had been transported in a preoccupying state to the CHU Pontchaillou.

The man died this Thursday in the room of the hospital where he had been admitted, we learned from the Rennes prosecutor's office.

Very quickly, suspicion fell on a 69-year-old hunter.

Placed in police custody, the man had been indicted and placed in pre-trial detention.

This Thursday, the investigating judge reclassified the facts as "manslaughter during a hunting action by clearly deliberate violation of an obligation of safety or prudence".
