Terry Dupin was neutralized by the police, Monday, May 31, around noon. The man, convicted four times for acts of domestic violence, had been wanted in the Dordogne since Saturday evening by 300 gendarmes. He had gone to his ex-companion and opened fire on his new companion.
The former soldier wanted in Dordogne for more than twenty-four hours by 300 gendarmes was neutralized following an exchange of fire with the GIGN, wounded in the throat then taken in charge by the emergency services, Monday, May 31, around midday. A local resident filmed the epilogue of the hunt from his garden. A resident describes the face-to-face between Terry Dupin and the police: “They asked him to surrender and he backed up, backed up. At one point he must have wanted to shoot them again and they hit back.”
For his part, the commander of the GIGN, Ghislain Réty, confirms that the madman refused any negotiation. “Obviously, he was in a suicidal logic, he had no choice but to open fire to force the gendarmes to what is called the suicide by cop. Maybe he didn’t have the courage to kill himself “, he believes. Terry Dupin’s escape finally lasted almost thirty-six hours. It all started in the night from Saturday to Sunday, in the town of Lardin-Saint-Lazare. Terry Dupin had fired on his ex-wife’s new companion.
