He told journalists about the hobbies of the criminal, and also that the killer was 69 years old, “he did not appear in the archives of the special services,” the TASS minister quotes.
It is also reported that the prosecutor’s office is now checking the possible terrorist motives of the shooter. The fact is that a case for “racist actions with the use of weapons” has already been opened. Thus, last year he was arrested for attacking an immigrant camp in Paris with a saber. He was released only on December 12 of this year and 11 days later he opened fire on the Parisians.
According to BFMTV, three of the shooter’s victims turned out to be Kurdish, but so far this information has not been officially confirmed.
The prosecutor’s office opened an investigation under the articles “Intentional crime”, “Homicide” and “Aggravated violence”. It is also reported that during the detention, the offender was injured and was disarmed by his bystanders even before the police arrived.
