In France, a deranged resident of the suburb of Saint-Just was found dead. On the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, a 48-year-old local resident fought with gendarmes, killed three, and then set his house on fire. This is reported by the French edition of Le Parisien.

“According to our information, the suspect was found dead in his own car. It was probably suicide”, - the newspaper writes.

The night accident took place in the small town of Puy-de-Dome. The suspect's wife called the gendarmes. When they arrived at the scene, they saw that the victim of domestic violence was trying to hide from her pursuer on the roof of the house. When the gendarmes tried to approach the house, the deranged suspect opened fire on them. He killed three of them, wounded the fourth, after which he set fire to his house and fled from the scene.

It is noted that the injured resident of France was saved. The suspect's house was extinguished only by morning. There was no risk of fire spreading to neighboring buildings, but the house itself was completely burned down.

After the incident in the suburbs of Saint-Just, French President Emmanuel Macron expressed his condolences to the families of the victims. “They are our heroes. They intervened to rescue a woman victim of domestic violence in Puy-de-Dôme. To protect us, our forces act at the risk of their own lives”, - he wrote on his Twitter.
