the policeman who used his weapon taken into custody


The policeman who used his assault rifle, on the night of Sunday to Monday in Paris, after a check at the Pont-Neuf, was placed in police custody, according to information from our colleagues at RTL.

The facts occurred after a driver refused to comply, parked in the wrong direction and tried to hit one of the police officers. While firing, the policeman killed two of the occupants of the vehicle and injured a third person.

Self-defense at the heart of the investigation

The investigation, entrusted to the Parisian PJ and the IGPN (General Inspectorate of the National Police) must determine the circumstances in which the policeman fired. Police officers will then have to determine whether or not the officer acted in self-defense.

Heard this Monday morning in free hearing by the IGPN, he was therefore placed this afternoon in police custody. His four colleagues also present at the time of the intervention should be heard by the investigators in the coming days.
