For reasons unknown, on August 6, 1996, Jean-Pierre, a divorced 55-year-old fuel-trader, shot to death his girlfriend's family and two police officers. In what investigators call a "crime of passion" Jean-Pierre walked to the house of his girlfriend, Solange Briet, in the hamlet of Val, near Rennes, in Brittany and started blasting away with a shotgun at her, her parents and her handicapped younger brother.

Although wounded, Solange managed to flee to a neighbor's house and call the police.

Her brother and parents died instantly. When two policemen arrived they found Jean-Pierre standing on the lawn outside the house. Witnesses say he put his hands in the air and agreed to give himself up. But moments later he picked up the shotgun, which he had hidden in a bush, and fired at the officers killing them both.

A third policeman, who had been interviewing neighbors, arrived when Jean-Pierre was reloading and was attacked with a knife. After a brief struggle, the policeman brought Jean-Pierre down with a shot which left him seriously wounded. Both Solange and Jean-Pierre were sent the hospital where their conditions were reported to be stable. Like always, neighbors described Jean-Pierre as a quiet man.
