An attempted feminicide took place this Sunday in Villemur-sur-Tarn, in Haute-Garonne.
A man in his forties shot his companion “in the leg with a pump-action rifle”, indicates the Toulouse prosecutor’s office. Then, when the gendarmes arrived, who “used a taser to control him”, he was shot in the jaw.
The two injured evacuated in absolute urgency
They were both evacuated to the Purpan University Hospital in Toulouse in an absolute emergency, according to firefighters. Their vital prognoses would not be engaged but the man “was placed in an artificial coma”, specified the prosecution.
An investigation for attempted homicide on a spouse was opened, entrusted to the investigators of the research brigade of the Toulouse Saint-Michel gendarmerie company. Another investigation, entrusted to the gendarmes of the Toulouse Research Section, must determine the circumstances in which the gendarme used his taser.
