A 23-year-old man from Ris-Orangis (Essonne) was shot dead Thursday evening in Évry in what looks like a brawl between rival gangs, said the Evry prosecutor’s office, requested by AFP.
Several arrests took place including probably that of the shooter of the fatal shots, explained the prosecution, specifying that it would be similar to a “brawl between rival gangs»By Ris-Orangis and Évry. Earlier in the evening, a man was shot in the arm in Ris-Orangis, facts which could be linked to the homicide, according to the prosecution.
In February, the department, hit hard by the phenomenon of rival gangs, was shaken by two deaths of 14-year-old teenagers in less than 24 hours in two towns 45 kilometers away. The two apparently unrelated murders occurred each time in brawls between young people: a schoolgirl had received a fatal stab in the small town of Saint-Chéron then a boy had died stabbed in Boussy-Saint-Antoine.
