This news item is reported by our colleagues from East Republican. On Sunday, around 11 h, the gendarmes received a strange phone call. At the end of the handset, a man in a state of astonishment, about forty years old. He explains that he has just been shot in the thigh. The proof ? A beautiful burn under the clothes and a projectile lying on the ground.
Immediately, the gendarmerie sends a patrol in this building dellois. But quickly, the military are intrigued by the configuration of places: an 4e floor, without vis-à-vis. Impossible to envisage an outside shooting.
They are then interested in this melted object on the ground that they have trouble identifying.
