According to a police source, a 20-year old man was killed and another 17 year-old was injured in Marseille on Saturday night. This seems like a new settlement of scores in the context of drug trafficking.
According to a source from the police, the facts were revealed by La Provence. They occurred in Marseille's working class district (3rd arrondissement) at 8:15 p.m. The shooter was armed with a gun and was riding an electric scooter.
The shooter fled, according to police sources. The federal police took over the investigation.
Dominique Laurens, Marseille's public prosecutor, said that the new homicide in Marseille might be a new settlement of scores due to the backdrop of drug trafficking. La Provence explains that the shooting occurred while the men were close to a "stuppoint".
According to the AFP, eleven people were shot dead in Bouches-duRhone since the start of the year, two others by stabbing, mostly in Marseille. This was most likely against background drug trafficking.
