Hooded shooters

An altercation occurred around 4 a.m. at the exit of the establishment, between guests of the two evenings.

Four people, present at the wedding, then left in a vehicle.

A few minutes later, four hooded individuals arrived at the wheel of another car to shoot several times at the participants of the African evening, who were still outside in front of the establishment.

Only the victim was hit by the bullets.

She suffers from an open fracture of the leg but her life is not in danger, specifies the regional daily.

The shooters fled in the wake.

The investigation was entrusted to the criminal brigade of the Sûreté du Rhône.
