A masked gang has car¬≠ried out a ter¬≠ri¬≠fy¬≠ing attack on a wed¬≠ding cer¬≠e¬≠mo¬≠ny in Thionville, France, killing one per¬≠son and wound¬≠ing five others. 

The inci­dent occurred around 1 am on Sun­day morn­ing at the Eden Palace recep­tion hall, where approx­i­mate­ly 100 peo­ple, report­ed­ly from the local Turk­ish com­mu­ni­ty, were in attendance.

Accord¬≠ing to sources, the attack is believed to be linked to a set¬≠tling of scores between drug traf¬≠fick¬≠ers. Three men, report¬≠ed¬≠ly wear¬≠ing face cov¬≠er¬≠ings and black hood¬≠ies, arrived at the scene and opened fire with two Kalash¬≠nikovs and a shotgun. 

A man in his 30s was killed, and three oth¬≠er peo¬≠ple were seri¬≠ous¬≠ly injured, with two of them in life-threat¬≠en¬≠ing con¬≠di¬≠tion. A preg¬≠nant woman also suf¬≠fered minor injuries, and a man was hurt by shards of glass.

The per­pe­tra­tors fled the scene before police arrived and are still at large. Inves­ti­ga­tors are work­ing to deter­mine how the crim­i­nals knew that their tar­gets would be out­side the venue when they launched the attack, as it appears the wed­ding itself was not the intend­ed target.

‚ÄúIt was dur¬≠ing a wed¬≠ding,‚ÄĚ a police source said. ‚ÄúAt a quar¬≠ter past one in the morn¬≠ing, a group of peo¬≠ple went out¬≠side to smoke in front of the hall, and then three heav¬≠i¬≠ly armed men arrived and opened fire in their direction.‚ÄĚ

The deceased and the three seri¬≠ous¬≠ly injured men are known to author¬≠i¬≠ties for drug-relat¬≠ed cas¬≠es, accord¬≠ing to local media reports. Police believe the shoot¬≠ing was a set¬≠tling of scores linked to drug traf¬≠fick¬≠ing, rather than a tar¬≠get¬≠ed attack on the wed¬≠ding party.
