In Dordogne, the New Years Eve party was fatal to a young man. The latter participated in an evening on the theme of “Peaky Blinders”, a gangster TV series. Another guest, who had brought a gun to accompany his costume, allegedly shot his comrade under still unclear circumstances.
A 27-year-old was shot and killed at a party themed on Peaky Blinders on the night of December 31. It is another participant in the evening, handling in still unclear circumstances a firearm during a New Year’s Eve with friends, who would have fired the fatal shot. Around 9:30 p.m., a shot was fired from a weapon brought by a guest, Bergerac prosecutor Odile de Fritsch told an AFP correspondent.
The alleged shooter in custody
The victim, residing in Agen, was hit in the chest and died on the spot, without being able to be resuscitated by the emergency services. The alleged shooter, also 27 years old and who usually resides in Ain, was taken into custody in Bergerac. The investigation entrusted to the Bergerac gendarmerie should in particular make it possible to better understand the circumstances of the use of this weapon, on which the prosecutor did not give more details.
