An armed man was overcome by the police in Lunas, Hérault.
The young man in his twenties was under the influence of cannabis, and jumped from roof to roof threatening to shoot anyone he saw.
The local residents had to be confined to their homes during the police intervention.
On Sunday afternoon the “frenzied man who was armed with a rifle”, was on a roof, with his father near him trying to make him listen to reason.
Eventually, after negotiations with the police, he gave himself up during the evening.
He was hospitalised in a specialised institute. The young man was already known to have psychological disorders.
