France: Teens Arrested for Shooting Driver, Passing Cars With Scoped Rifle

A trio of teenagers was arrested for shooting at passing cars and seriously wounding at least one driver in France last week, according to reports.

The disturbing incident unfolded on Friday evening in the coastal commune of Agde.

Police began receiving reports from motorists saying they had been targeted by gunfire while traveling along a departmental road at around 9:30 p.m.

One driver, a 26-year-old male, was seriously injured when a round penetrated his door and struck him in the leg.

Investigators determined that a shooter using a .22 caliber rifle had likely fired from a nearby residential area and a surveillance team was deployed to monitor the neighborhood the next night.

"A suspect was seen on the roof of a house at around 12:30 a.m.," a source informed Actu 17.

Authorities arrived at the home and arrested a 13-year-old male "on the charge of attempted murder."

A .22 rifle with a scope belonging to the boy's father was located at the residence.

The suspect reportedly claimed he "only shot seagulls from his bedroom window on the evening of Friday, January 21."

He told authorities two friends, aged 14 and 17, had participated with him in the shooting. They were promptly apprehended, as well.

An investigation is ongoing, and at least six victims have been identified so far.

The wounded driver was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
