The street was blocked and a large security perimeter was established. Earlier in the evening, a dispute between this individual and another Colfontainois went very wrong in rue Jean-Baptiste Clément. A sixty-year-old man shot the other man in the head.
Seriously injured, the victim was rushed to Saint-Joseph hospital in Mons where he was operated on overnight. His days are endangered.
Witnesses said the reason for the shooting was … a parking spot. The seriously injured man had parked in front of the gunman’s house, which would have put him in mad anger.
