A holidaymaker on a scooter was killed in a gangland shooting at a service station in southern France that left two other people dead.

A manhunt was under way today after the 57-year-old French woman and her husband were sprayed with bullets as they passed the station in the town of Ollioules, near Toulon.

“The couple was in the wrong place at the wrong time,” said an investigating source. “They had hired a scooter and ended up in a gangland shooting.

“The woman was hit in the back and died, along with two men who were known to police as being involved in the drugs trade.

“The woman’s husband was driving the scooter and hit in the shoulder by a bullet, and is currently in hospital in Toulon. The woman was on the back of the scooter, and was hit from behind.”
