handcuff arrest 2The 29-year-old man on holiday in Monaco has been arrested in connection with a shooting incident one year ago in Montpelier, according to Midi Libre.

The main suspect in the case, who was involved in a shooting between opposing groups of people in the car park of a discotheque, is accused of attempted murder in late August 2016.

On Sunday, August 6, the Research and Investigation Brigade in Nice arrested the man, a Vauclusian, in the morning and placed him in custody in Montpellier. He has been accused of firing two 9mm shots during the fracas, injuring a man in the neck and jaw. The victim spent several days in a coma with little hope of recovery.

The alleged culprit has been described by the authorities as having a long criminal record for acts of violence and drug trafficking. He was indicted for attempted murder on Tuesday, August 8, and placed in pre-trial detention. The judicial investigation continues.
