Dijon: Drug war in France – machine gun ricochet kills father in his sleep

In France, unknown people in the city of Dijon shelled a residential building near a drug transshipment point and killed a 55-year-old father. As several French media reported with reference to the investigators, the apparently bystander was hit by a ricochet in his second floor apartment on Sunday night. According to the current status of the investigation, the man was not the target of the two fleeing attackers, the France Info broadcaster reported. The newspaper “Le Parisien” writes that they fired at the building with submachine guns.

According to reports, investigators collected around 60 bullet casings from the building. The nightly shots in the eastern French metropolis broke through several windows without injuring anyone else. Referring to the victim's adult daughter, Le Parisien reported that the 55-year-old was killed in his sleep. The public prosecutor's office wanted to provide information about the status of the investigation in Dijon in the afternoon.

In Marseille in the south of France and in other large cities, violent settlements in the drug community have also been increasing recently. Young attackers often shoot around with Kalashnikovs and also hit bystanders.

In Marseille, a student was fatally shot in her room when criminals blindly fired an assault rifle at a facade. In Nîmes, a ten-year-old boy died after being shot in the back seat of his uncle's car, who was completely uninvolved in the drug trade.
