Avignon: the armed man shot dead by the police, a member...

A 33-year-old man followed for psychiatric problems was shot dead Thursday morning in Avignon (Vaucluse) by the police while threatening people in the street with a handgun. He would have claimed to belong to the small group Identity Generation.

“We are deviating from the Islamist track. The man had a psychiatric follow-up and made incoherent remarks ”, indicated in the afternoon the parquet floor of Avignon.

Called around 10 a.m. by a passer-by reporting that a man with a pistol-type handgun was threatening people, the police intervened. “The man charged at them with his weapon and was killed by the police,” said a spokesperson for the Avignon police. “There are no injuries,” continued this source.

According to Le Monde, the man threatened a Maghrebian trader and said he belonged to Génération Identitaire, an extreme right-wing group.

The investigation was handed over to the federal police.
