Soccer-Toulouse player held for questioning over alleged shooting

TOULOUSE, France, March 30 (Reuters) - Toulouse forward Odsonne Edouard has been detained for questioning over an alleged shooting, French prosecutors said on Thursday.

The 19-year-old, on loan from Paris St Germain, will “be presented before the prosecutor today or tomorrow... for armed violence,” a Toulouse prosecutors’ spokesman said.

A passer-by sustained an ear injury from a handgun shot fired from inside Edouard’s car in February, the spokesman said.

The Toulouse club declined to comment. (Reporting by Johanna Decorse; writing by Julien Pretot; editing by Mark Heinrich; Editing by XXXX)
