Eddy Shooting, a young guy in the northern districts of Marseille, was sentenced, Thursday, to sitting, to 25 years imprisonment for the murder of the kalashnikov organised a teenager in 2011, and his co-accused to 15 years in prison. Before the assize court of the Bouches-du-Rhône, the general counsel had requested the day before thirty years of imprisonment with a sentence of safety two-thirds against Eddy Shooting, 25-year-old, and twenty years against his co-accused Seyni Demba, 23 years old.
On December 22, 2011, the victim, Kamel El Mehli, 17, is escorted back to La Castellane, at the foot of his building, with two other men by the accused Eddy Shooting and Seyni Demba, after a tour of the bars. Once you step off the vehicle, it is caught by Eddy’s Shooting, that the shot to the kalashnikov rifle.
The prosecution argued then that the murder was the revenge of a young “guy offended”. Indeed, three months earlier, Eddy Shooting was wounded in the thigh, in public, a stab of Kamel El Mehli. Seyni Demba, he had fought with the victim two days before the murder.
The father of the young Kamel El Mehli shouted for joy upon learning of the verdict, running : “I got the guy !”, while the mother of the young victim collapsed under the effort. “15 years for Seyni it is not enough, it was his brother, it is not enough!” she screamed in front of the Palace of justice.
During the trial, which lasted a week, the prosecution argued that Seyni Demba had caught his friend still in a trap, feigning a reconciliation on the evening of the drama, to then let it run by Eddy Shooting, which possessed a kalashnikov rifle. Eddy Shooting, 33 convictions entered in its criminal records between 2004 and 2011, had denied the murder, saying “the victim of a conspiracy” hatched by the inhabitants of La Castellane.
