It was a chase between a scooter, a car and a motorcycle that led to the shooting just before 11 a.m. on the road to Palada near the Bond de Chains pharmacy in Fort-de-France.
As people lined up outside the pharmacy, at least four gunshots were heard.
A young man on a scooter, chased a car and a motorcycle, was shot and then tried to take refuge in a parking lot. As the victim moved with difficulty to cover up, more guns from the car and motorcycle were aimed in the direction of the parking lot.
Panicked, passers-by took refuge in the pharmacy or in their vehicles.
At least 13 bullet holes were visible in the roundabout this afternoon.
The main victim and the apparent target of the shooter were the man who was seriously wounded by gunshot wounds. It was a 26-year-old man with an abdominal injury. A woman was also slightly injured in the shooting. Both were taken care of by emergency services.
An investigation is underway to determine the exact cause of the shooting.
