It is an absolute tragedy. […] Everyone must take the measure of their responsibility to put an end to the cycle of violence,” wrote the Town Hall in a press release, according to Le Parisien.

According to the municipality, the young man was the victim of a punitive expedition of rare violence. “The aggression was fleeting, cold, blind,” explains the press release. Hit several times with “blunt objects”, the teenager, abandoned on the ground by his attackers, was taken to intensive care at Beaujon hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries after four days. No suspects have been arrested at this time.
