Paris-Paris police are searching for a gunner who fired on Monday near a hospital in the wealthy 16th arrondissement of the French capital, killing one and injuring another. Witnesses on the scene suggest that while authorities have not revealed a link to terrorism, it could be a case of tragic score resolution.
The Paris Police Department, which began investigating the murder on Monday, said the shooters had fired several bullets before escaping on a motorcycle. Police had no other immediate details.
Noura Berrahmouni of the DSPAP Alliance said the injured woman was a hospital guard.
“It was so fast that I thought the score had settled down … otherwise I think there would be more casualties,” she said.
According to BFM-TV witnesses, the shooter wore a hood and fired several times.
