The episode did not cause any injuries, but the police are hard at work to elucidate the circumstances. Thursday, May 6, the Malraux high school, located in Montataire, in the Oise, was the target of fireworks, said the Senlis prosecutor’s office. “No injuries” or damage is to be deplored, said the same source. A minor was taken into custody.
The pyrotechnic devices were fired in the direction of a childcare center, potentially targeted personally, added the prosecution. The prosecutor, Jean-Baptiste Bladier, told AFP that “an investigation has been opened for violence against a person in charge of a public service mission”.
In a press release, the public prosecutor clarified the circumstances of the facts: “a garbage container located in front of the school bus shelter was set on fire at 10 a.m.”, then, at 12:10 p.m., “the school’s fire alarm was triggered using a box located, by hypothesis, within the establishment “.
“At 12.50 p.m., noting from her office a group of people on the forecourt, the Principal Education Advisor (CPE) had gone out on the said forecourt. She then saw a group of 6 to 7 individuals, all wearing hoods and dressed in black, busy around a shopping bag on the ground, “continued Jean-Baptiste Bladier.
“Some individuals were provided with bottles containing a liquid that could be likened to fuel, while another was carrying a firework mortar. This particular individual had approached the CPE and then fired in its direction. saying ‘hey, this is for you’, “added the prosecutor. The CPE said it was able to avoid the shooting, before wiping, once sheltered inside the building, “5 or 6 bursts of fire”, in its words, repeated by Jean-Baptiste Bladier.
After the facts, the investigators quickly discovered “two plastic bottles containing a ‘greenish liquid’ which could be a flammable liquid” in a flower box, as well as “two bottles containing the same liquid and a bottle of lighter -liquid fire, hidden by a glass container.
According to the prosecutor, the CPE said during its hearing that it was unable “to identify the perpetrator who used the firework mortar”. She did, however, identify “one of the people checked by the police on their arrival in the square as having belonged to the group of perpetrators”.
The teenager, placed in police custody, is suspected of “manufacturing an explosive device, attempted damage by fire and complicity in aggravated violence”, according to Jean-Baptiste Bladier. The respondent “is not a high school student”.
“As it stands, it is not possible to precisely determine the motivation of the authors, nor to say that they would be students or former students of the establishment,” continued the magistrate of the ministry. public.
One of the hypotheses considered is that these shots “could be linked to decisions taken in a disciplinary framework inside the school, a few days ago” against “one or more students”, had declared to AFP, Thursday evening, the public prosecutor of Senlis. The Creil police station was in charge of the investigations, and “the analysis of the material elements seized on the spot is in progress”, according to the same source.
The rector of the academy of Amiens Raphaël Muller and the prefect of the Oise Corinne Orzechowski “strongly condemn these acts of violence (…) To attack the public service of education is intolerable”.
