The Detroit News: Gunman kills 4 outside Jewish school in France
A father and his two sons were among four people who died Monday when a gunman opened fire in front of a Jewish school in a city in southwest France, the Toulouse prosecutor said Monday.The shooter did get away and has yet to be caught.
Michel Valet said the 30-year-old man and his 3-year-old and 6-year-old sons were killed in the shooting just before school started.
He said another child, between 8 and 10 years old, was also killed, and a 17-year-old seriously injured.
The shooter drove away on a scooter, a national police official in Paris said.
Interestingly enough, the same scooter-drive-by attack was used to kill two French paratroopers in two prior incidents in the area.
The shooting happened in the same area where a gunman on a motorbike opened fire on three uniformed paratroopers at a bank machine Thursday, killing two and critically wounding the other. The attack in the town of Montauban occurred not far from the soldiers' barracks. Four days earlier, a gunman on a motorbike shot and killed another paratrooper in Toulouse, about 30 miles away.Not a lot of information and no one has claimed responsibility yet even if it seems to fit the style of a certain peaceful religion, and the French have yet to round up the usual suspects....
Authorities said at the time that forensic analysis showed that the same weapon was used in the shootings in Montauban and Toulouse.
