A tourist was killed in the crossfire of a Kalashnikov gangland shooting at a gas station in France that left two others dead.
A couple who used a rented scooter during a vacation in southern France were sprayed with bullets as they passed the AK-47 shooting in which three people died.
One of the two – a woman whose nationality is unknown – was among the deceased on Sunday in the massacre at a gas station in Ollioules, near Toulon.
Two men also killed the gun attack around 8 p.m. last night.
& # 39; The couple were in the wrong place at the wrong time & # 39 ;, a research source said. & # 39; They had rented a scooter and ended up in a gangland shooting.
The woman and two men were killed during a shooting at a gas station in Ollioules, west of Toulon in the south of France
& # 39; The woman was hit in the back and died, along with two men known to the police as involved in drug trafficking.
& # 39; The woman's husband was riding the scooter and was hit by a bullet in the shoulder and is currently in the hospital in Toulon. The woman was on the back of the scooter and was hit from behind. & # 39;
The men who died in the shooting at 8 pm were 29 and 30 years old, and both had a criminal record, while the woman was 57.
Other men ran away from the gas station and the police think they were involved in the firefight. None of those involved has been publicly identified.
The couple had recently bought a second home in Ollioules and had just started their summer vacation in France.
Detectives had dropped off the crime scene on Monday, where bullet holes were visible everywhere.
Researchers said that Kalashnikov assault rifles – which are easily available on the black market in nearby cities such as Marseille – had been used by the criminals.
Mayor Ollioules, Robert Beneventi, described the & # 39; gangland culture & # 39; in the area and said: & # 39; I have been mayor for a long time and have seen things get worse.
& # 39; We have been asking for police reinforcements for years. What happens ends with tragedies that put families in misery. & # 39;
