A violent brawl broke out in a squat overnight from Friday to Saturday in Toulouse. The main victim died in hospital overnight from Sunday to Monday. A suspect has been taken to hospital.
A violent fight took place in a squat on rue Babinet, early Saturday in Toulouse. During the emergency intervention of the firefighters and a medical team from Smur 31, La Reynerie district, several victims had been taken care of and the state of health of a man had in particular been considered “worrying” because a major neck injury. Hospitalized in the shock room at the Purpan hospital, this 24-year-old man did not survive despite the care. His death was confirmed by medical teams overnight from Sunday to Monday.
Sunday, the prosecution had opened a judicial investigation for “attempted homicide”. A 33-year-old man, arrested by police officers from the anti-crime brigade a few minutes after the violent fight with several blade blows, was indicted on his hospital bed on Sunday. He too had been injured, like several other people. Two new victims were indeed treated by the investigators of the competent unit to the people of the departmental security who carry out the investigations.
“We issued a supplementary indictment for murder after the death of the victim”, specifies the Toulouse prosecutor’s office about the legal consequences of this file. For the moment, the reasons for this brawl remain “still imprecise”, warn the prosecution. The hearing of the main suspect did not make it possible to understand much. “He is not very stable psychologically and that is an understatement,” slips a public security policeman.
The police hope to be able to clarify the scene, and the reasons for the violence, if they exist, with the hearings of witnesses.
At the end of his indictment on Sunday afternoon at the hospital, the main suspect was also placed under a warrant by the judge of freedoms and the hospital. He will be transferred to the remand center when his state of health is stabilized.
