A 55-year-old restaurateur suspected of shooting a gunman in the Isère on Sunday at two customers who left without paying for their drinks was charged Wednesday (June 2) with “attempted murder” and jailed, the Grenoble prosecutor has learned.
The 50-year-old would have shot two friends who left his facility in Roussillon, south of Vienna, on Sunday afternoon without paying for their two beers. According to Dauphiné Libéré, who revealed the information, a dispute would have arisen shortly before the closure of the restaurant between the restaurant owner and his two customers. The altercation allegedly escalated to the point where he landed near the restaurant where the manager would have used his weapon. His shot hit one of the two friends in the left hand and lightly hit the other. The 34-year-old victim was taken to Lyon-Sud hospital.
The alleged perpetrator appeared before investigators of the Vienna Search Brigade on Monday, where he explained that he had shot in the air. However, the use of CCTV cameras made it possible to find that “he opened fire in the direction of the victim”, the prosecutor of the Republic of Vienna, Audrey Quey, explained to the regional newspaper.
The Grenoble prosecutor in criminal matters has launched a judicial inquiry after his Vienna counterpart resigned.
