Impossible to move freely on a large part of rue Faidherbe in Lille, Monday October 14 between 9 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. The neighborhood was cordoned off by peacekeepers, BAC personnel and Sentinel soldiers, following the report of a potentially dangerous individual.
Someone called the police around 9 p.m. to report the presence of a man with a long gun, at a window of an apartment on the second floor of a building on rue du Priez. & Nbsp;
Another call had been made shortly before 17 to report suspicious behavior in the same street, suggesting to the police that drug trafficking had taken place. & Nbsp;
After intervention, all doubts were removed, no weapon was found, no offense was identified and no one was arrested. The individuals initially considered "suspect" were in fact in a squat.
