The police officer who killed two men suspected of having forced a check near the Pont-Neuf in Paris on Sunday, by shooting at their car, was referred on Wednesday to be presented to two investigating judges for his indictment, said the prosecution.

The Paris public prosecutor's office has opened a judicial investigation for "willful violence by a person holding public authority resulting in death without the intention of giving it", a qualification punishable by the assizes, and "willing violence with a weapon by a person holding public authority ".

The peacekeeper, a member of a night support group within the City Security Company (CSC), had been questioned by the General Inspectorate of the National Police (IGPN) since Monday afternoon for "willful violence resulting in death without the intention of giving it".

The announcement of the extension of his police custody was made the next day, Tuesday.
