Marseille shooting: Hooded men open fire with Kalashnikovs

HOODED gunmen have opened fire with automatic rifles, kalachnikovs, in Marseille, in south France – with one person reportedly injured.

The men opened fire on a group of young people not far from the cultural space known as ‘La Busserine’, local media Corse-Matin reports.

Three vehicles with the masked individuals arrived in the city’s district of Busserine at 5pm local time, France’s ACTU17 said.

Police exchanged fire with the shooters and officers have set up a cordon.

At this time it is unclear if any arrests have been made, but police are investigating.

Marseille’s Marines-Pompiers, the city’s fire and rescue service, is also at the scene.

This is the second shooting in the city in a matter of weeks.

Last month a man, said to be in his thirties, was seriously injured in a shooting outside a restaurant in central Marseille

The victim was hit several times in a hail of bullets after two gunmen opened fire as he sat with a drink in a snack bar.

He was in “serious condition”, according to France TV, after being shot more than once in the legs.

The shooting took place in broad daylight shortly before 3pm local time (2pm GMT) on April 17.

There are said to be several witnesses to the brazen attack on Avenue Camille Pelletan.

Since the start of the year, six people have been killed in shootings in Marseille, France TV said.

And three more people have been killed in gun violence in the wider Bouches-du-Rhone area

Un-possible due to strict gun control laws. Macron agrees.

They really should make fully auto AKs illegal in France, maybe.

Oooh. It occurred at a “cultural space.”

How fitting!

Could have been worse, at least they didn’t use an AR-15

So sad. Glad I enjoyed Marseille years ago when it was quaint with amazing food.

You know, back when it was a French city.

Fake News.

Europe has the strictest gun laws and things like this only happens in America because we are too stupid to listen to our betters and repeal the 2nd Amendment.

Sensible gun laws are needed

More likely gangs. Remember the French Connection. Big Marseilles organization, real story.

If only those Europeons didn’t cling so bitterly to their 2nd amendment rights and their “toxic masculinity”-fueled “John Wayne” delusions, these shootings wouldn’t happen. /sarc

Well, taking alternate stocks, magazines, and rifles from law-abiding Americans will fix this, without any doubt.

It sounds more like a gang hit. If it were terrorist I would think that there would be a whole lot more casualties.
