Gendarmes targeted by flare shots and Molotov cocktails

MARIGOT: The first part of Tuesday night was very tense.  Two vehicles were set on fire in Saint-James and Agrément. “The police were fired at with flares and Molotov cocktails. There were no injuries,” said Lieutenant-Colonel Maxime Wintzer.

In Sandy-Ground, it was reported that a laundry business was looted.

At 4:00 a.m., a barricade was being set up in Quartier d’Orléans. The military intervened and despite the throwing of stones and Molotov cocktails in their direction, the barricade was cleared. It should be noted that one individual was arrested. The police also seized a scooter to be destroyed, as it was not allowed to be used on the road.
