On the other hand, her attacker, who had attempted suicide after attempting to kill her in the middle of the street, succumbed to his injuries.
Victim of an “outburst of violence” on the part of his companion Thursday in Metz, Sevgi is no longer between life and death, judicial sources indicate to BFMTV, confirming information from France 3.
The suspect, who tried to kill his companion Thursday afternoon in the middle of the street, seriously injuring her, before shooting himself in the head, was brain dead. He has since succumbed to his injuries, the same sources say.
The assault, which had been filmed and relayed on social networks, caused a wave of emotion. A white march was organized this Saturday in support of the victim.
A complaint dismissed
The suspect was sentenced in 2014 to two months suspended prison sentence for “violence by spouse”. And last August, his victim had filed a complaint for insults, a complaint dismissed by the prosecution.
More recently, on May 19 and 28, she again reported to the police to report that he had cursed her, spat on her and followed her in the car, according to the prosecution.
