The afternoon could have been quieter on Saturday August 22 in Beaumont-de-Lomagne. There was even a lot of commotion on the side of avenue Albert-Soubies, which passes just behind the Gaston-Vivas rugby stadium. According to the first elements available to us, the Beaumont gendarmerie intervened between 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. to arrest a man in his sixties. The latter is suspected of having threatened a group of young people with a gun.
Excited by the noise of the group of young people
The sixty-year-old would have been outraged by the noise caused by this group, of which we still do not know how many individuals it was made up. The respondent would then have left his home with a rifle. “The intention was probably to scare the crowd, rather than to hurt any person,” says a source close to the investigation, which has just started and which is placed under the authority of the prosecution. from Montauban. The man was taken into custody and should be heard in the coming hours by the gendarmerie.
