Marseille, France – Three Hooded Men Open Fire with AK-47s

 In Foreign

The Daily Mail reported that on Monday afternoon at around 5 p.m. local time, three cars with ‘hooded’ men dressed in black opened fire on a group of young people in the Busserine District of Marseille, France near a Cultural Center, according to local media. Only one person was injured after being struck in the head with the butt of a gun. Police returned fire as the attackers fled the scene. No one has been arrested.

The three vehicles arrived in a coordinated manner as the men opened fire with “automatic rifles” and handguns in a country that has rigid gun control. The dark  colored Renault Megane RS vehicles blocked the path of police arriving at the scene. Are the sounds in the video “automatic gunfire?”

A “drug related” incident in which the perpetrators all wore black and were hooded? It’s odd. Police “ruled out terrorism” and stated it was probably “drug related.” The incident came just 3 days after a terror plot involving explosives and ricin was foiled by French authorities, according to the Daily Wire.

Police found 9mm and 7.62 casings at the scene. The fact that these suspects primarily shot in the air, doesn’t fit the pattern of jihadists. Unless it was done as a distraction for something else. Since US news media do not cover this sort of thing, we may never know.

Terrorism Watch reported on the ricin- explosives incident:

France’s interior minister says authorities have thwarted a possible attack using ricin or explosives and arrested two brothers.
Interior minister Gerard Collomb told BFM television, on Friday, that authorities were tracking extremist activity on social networks and identified two young men “preparing to commit an attack with explosives or ricin.”
He said the young men were of Egyptian origin but didn’t indicate their nationality or provide other details about where or when they were arrested. He said the men notably had tutorials on how to make poison using ricin.

No other information was immediately released.
The announcement came days after an Islamic extremist stabbed five people in the heart of Paris, and as the country is still on edge after a string of deadly attacks in recent years

    This seems like a false flag attack of some sort. With the gun men firing into the air, its almost like they were trying to NOT hurt anyone. Also it appears from the video that there were multiple vehicles with multiple men. The closest vehicle had at least 4 figures dressed in black exit it. The similar vehicle at the top of the screen had at least one or more similarly dressed figures blocking the street at the top of the screen, while the two armed figures walk up the street. At the same time Thes a differently dressed man walking down the street who appears curious but unalarmed at all this activity, even long after the “gunfire” starts. It may have been a unannounced training event or a test of the military or civil response by one side or the other.
