A man in his twenties was found dead by a bullet in the head between Friday and Saturday night in the heart of Marseille, near the Belle de Mai district, we learned Saturday from confirming sources.
The Marseille firefighters, who were called to the scene around midnight, were unable to revive the victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after, they confirmed to AFP.
By Saturday morning, there was still nothing to understand the evolution of the facts, or to know whether this event could be a settlement of dozens associated with drug trafficking.
“The man has not yet been identified and as it is, no information is available on the mobile” of this killing, Dominique Laurens, prosecutor in the Republic of Marseille, told AFP.
The investigation was handed over to the federal police.
