According to a press release from the prefecture, 150 soldiers are deployed (including 60 from the Dordogne gendarmerie group) and two helicopters have been called in as reinforcements to find this individual, armed and dangerous. The GIGN of Toulouse is in intervention on the spot and the GIGN of Satory (Yvelines) is on the way, specified the gendarmerie.
