“In the current state of investigations conducted by investigators, there is no element that would allow them to be involved in the acts,” said the prosecutor’s office, adding that the suspect’s mental state is incompatible with the arrest and advised that he be taken to a psychiatric hospital.
The man was arrested in the Lyon district, close to the Greek Orthodox time where the attack took place, because it corresponds with the description that the witnesses made of the author of the shooting and who fled.
This is a homeless person who did not carry weapons at the time of detention.
At the moment, investigators do not rule out any hypothesis about the shooting that seriously injured the archpriest of the Orthodox Church of Lyon, although the investigation is not under the responsibility of the Anti-Terrorist Prosecutor’s Office, which rules out terrorist motives.
Currently, the investigation remains open, exclusively, as “attempted homicide”.
This attack came two days after three people were beheaded in a Catholic basilica in Nice by a Tunisian immigrant who had entered France irregularly.
In just over a month, it was the third attack of an Islamic character that France suffered, which led the authorities to increase security in the temples during the celebration of the All Saints’ holiday.
