A man was shot dead at a New Year’s Eve party in the Dordogne in southwest France. As French media reported, citing the prosecutor in Bergerac, the 27-year-old was hit in the chest and died on the spot. The alleged shooter was therefore in custody, and initial investigations were initiated.
According to the AFP news agency, the celebration on New Year’s Eve was said to have been a costume party for the British gangster series “Peaky Blinders”, in which the characters also carry firearms. About 20 former schoolmates celebrated together. The radio station France Bleu reported that some of the guests came to the party armed.
