Two Injured in France Mosque Shooting

Suspect Arrested near His Home in Bayonne


Two people were wounded in a shooting outside a mosque in the south-western city of Bayonne, France, on Monday afternoon.

The French police said a gunman was attempting to set fire to the mosque’s door when he was discovered by two elderly men.

The gunman shot the two men, believed to be in their 70s, seriously injuring both of them.

The suspect, an 84-year-old man, fled the scene after attempting to set fire on a car. However, he was later arrested near his home.

French President Emmanuel Macron condemned the attack saying “The Republic will never tolerate hatred,’’

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
