Jean-Pierre Roux-Durraffourt



Jean-Pierre Roux-Durrafourt drove into the centre of Tours in mid-morning. He parked his old Peugeot car,
cocked a .22 rifle and opened fire at passers-by and shoppers around the main square.



The shooting began in one of the main shopping streets. Firing indiscriminately, Roux-Durrafourt shot dead
two men aged 66 and 60. He took the time to reload before killing two more men, aged 45 and 34.



The centre of Tours, a quiet and picturesque city on the river Loire, was cleared by officers
after the man stepped from a car and started shooting passers-by close to the town
hall and railway station just before 10am.















Three men, aged 34, 45 and 60, died when they were hit by bullets. A fourth, aged 65, succumbed
to a heart attack. Among the wounded were two police officers who tried to intervene.





Roux-Durrafourt fled to a car park below a conference centre while police cordoned off the city centre.



An hour later he was led away bleeding from a chest wound after the police
cornered him on one of the ramps.
