The area is cordoned off. Since 1:30 p.m. this Thursday, a police operation has been underway in Les Moulins, a priority district in the west of Nice plagued by drug trafficking and the scene, in recent days, of several shootings. The police, supported by the CRS 8 deployed on site since Tuesday and the Raid, would be mobilized to find at least one armed man holed up in one of the buildings.
In a post published on X, the national police invite you to “avoid the sector”. Contacted by 20 minutes, the prefecture confirms that an operation is underway, but does not wish to say more at this stage. The mayor of Nice Christian Estrosi and his first deputy Anthony Borré are on site. Armored vehicles from the Raid also arrived.
