Paris Gunman in Custody – Linked to Infamous 1994 Case


Abdelhakim Dekhar is no stranger to police, having been imprisoned for his part in a brutal case from 1994, in which a young couple from well-to-families went on the rampage in Paris, leaving five dead including three police officers

The Rey-Maupin case shocked France, when two young people went on a Bonny-and-Clyde-style killing spree across central Paris. After killing three police officers and a taxi driver in two shoot-outs, Audrey Maupin died from gunshot wounds and his girlfriend Audrey Rey surrendered to police.

She was sentenced to 20 years in prison and was released June 2009, after serving 15 years.
