The worst was probably avoided on Wednesday in Lavandou and Bormes-les-Mimosas, two municipalities located in the Var. ” We have surely escaped a mass killing “, Tells a source close to the file to France Bleu. Indeed, a man arrived around noon at his former place of work with five rifles and a handgun.
Miraculously, no injuries!
He fired dozens of shots at two companies in this artisanal area. First, he went to a construction equipment company, where his ex-partner, receptionist, worked. The 30-year-old man shot at least 30 times in the direction of employees and customers, as well as on the facade and cars in the parking lot, blowing up windows, causing no injuries.
He then went to another company, where he worked and from where he had laid off a few days earlier. He fired another fifteen shots again, still without causing any injuries. The gendarmes then arrive and the man turns one of the weapons against him to commit suicide. A psychological support unit has been set up for employees and customers, who are extremely shocked.
