BFM TV is reporting that one person has died, after a man and a woman were hit by bullets. One victim is said to be the hospital’s security guard. The shooter is at large, the report said.
Photos posted by journalist Philippe Gault on social media show crime scene tape and a patrol car parked near the hospital.
Henry-Dunant is a private hospital located in the capital’s southwestern 16th arrondissement. It currently serves as a Covid-19 vaccination site.
Radio station France Info cited a police source saying that “several” shots were fired and that an attacker fled on a two-wheeled vehicle. The report added that the vehicle in question was a Yamaha TMAX scooter without a license plate.
The manager of a restaurant located opposite the hospital told BFM TV that he heard the shots and saw a man lying on the ground. He said that a person wearing a hood came up to the victim, shot him at close range, and left “in cold blood, as if nothing had happened.” The witness added that the shooter had a scooter waiting for him 500 meters from the crime scene.
