“On Tuesday evening, around 20:30, a CRS crew of six police officers checked a Nissan vehicle with only one person on board. It turned out that the driver gave a false identity. The police invited him to park and take him to the police station in Nantes as part of an identity verification procedure. The driver, it seems, sought to evade this control by operating at a brisk pace. This may be the fact that this person was the subject of an arrest warrant in June 2017 for incidents of robbery and criminal conspiracy. One of the officers followed the progress of the vehicle until he was positioned near the driver’s seat and fired only once. Circumstances confirmed by the medical examiner who conducted the autopsy of the body this morning.
The bullet hit the victim on the neck, causing his death. “
