They drank two beers, then ran off without paying the bill. The escape of two French boys did not last long, hit by the shots of the owner of a club in Roussillon, in the north of Isère, in France. The 55-year-old restaurateur was indicted for double murder and sent to trial.
One boy was seriously injured in the arm, the other was lightly hit. The restaurateur appeared at the police station, claiming to have fired into the air with the intention of intimidating them and not hitting them.
The images from the surveillance camera belie his version: in the videos, the man points the rifle at the fleeing customers. The Grenoble Public Prosecutor’s Office has opened a criminal investigation against him.
