PARIS: A man and a woman were shot dead at a Paris bar on Sunday evening (Monday in Manila) by a gunman who then fled on foot, police said, labelling the crime as “mysterious.” The two were shot at point-blank range with one bullet each as they were in the outside terrace of the bar in a residential part of the French capital’s southern 14th arrondissement, or district. They tried to take refuge inside but the man died at the scene and the woman died as she was being taken to hospital, said police investigator Jean-Jacques Herlem. Herlem called the shooting “mysterious” and said police did not yet know the motive.
“All hypotheses are obviously open. The investigation has just started,” said a source close to the probe.
