A 17-year-old minor was shot and injured by municipal police in Longjumeau (Essonne) on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, following what appears to be a refusal to comply, said the Evry prosecution.

The young man would have sought to reach the municipal police with his vehicle, which would have motivated a response from the agents, according to a judicial source.

One of the two municipal police officers on the spot would have used his service weapon twice, wounding the young man with two bullets, said this source again.

His vital prognosis not engaged 

The vital prognosis of the injured is not engaged, but the firefighters, who intervened a little after 10 p.m., explained that he had been taken to the hospital, while the municipal police officer concerned was examined on the spot.

An investigation for refusal to comply with endangerment of others was opened and entrusted to the Massy police station, said the Evry prosecution.

Another aimed at determining the conditions of the shootings was entrusted to the departmental security.
