ASSASSINATION!

2006/08/28

The First-President of Louisianna has been assassinated by at least one gunman in Lyons-sur-Mizouri, Louisianna. Her Majesty the Emperor of Japan was fatally wounded at the same time.

Jean-François Young was hit in the head and throat when three shots were fired at his open-topped car traveling through the Little Yamato district of Lyons-sur-Mizouri. The motorcade was traveling through the area of the city on its way to a luncheon with civic and cultural leaders.

The two world leaders were accompanied by their spouses, who were both uninjured following the attacks. There is no word from the Louisiannan Council regarding an interim successor to the First-Presidency. It is expected that the nation will face elections nearly immediately to fill the void.

The presidential party was driving from the Lyons-sur-Mizouri aerodrome to the Civic Centre when witnesses said shots were fired from the window of at least one building overlooking the road.

The First-President collapsed into Anaïs Michelle Young’s arms, who was heard to cry “Oh no”. Seconds later Her Majesty the Emperor was also fatally hit.

L’Etoile de Lyons-sur-Mizouri’s photographer Robert St. Jacques was in the motorcade close behind the leader’s car and heard the shots as it entered Quiùxù Plaza.

“As I looked up I saw a rifle being pulled back from a window – it might have been resting on the windowsill – I didn’t see a man,” he said.

Mr. Young’s limousine was driven at speed to L’Hôpital Dieu immediately after the shooting. The First-President and Empress were alive when admitted, but died at 1255 local time (1755 GMT) – 35 minutes after being shot.

Police Nationale and Republican Guard agents stormed the Lycée Warehousing Annex moments after the shots were fired and recovered a rifle with a telescopic sight, said to be the assassination weapon.

The mood of shock in the Louisianna was echoed by General-Moderator Gore. “This is terrible – I cannot find words,” he said.

BREAKING NEWS FROM LOUISIANNA!!

2006/08/28

Les Plaines Radio Transcript, 28 August, 2006
(As broadcast by a radio station from Les Plaines at 12:00 LST)

HOWARD MORGENSTERN reporting:

The First-President’s motorcade is now turning onto the Rue Honxu, and it will be only a matter of minutes before they arrive at the Civic Centre for their luncheon today. I was on the river freeway earlier this morning and it was jam-packed with spectators waiting their chance to see both the First-President and Her Majesty the Emperor of Japan.

It-It appears that something has happened to the motorcade…

I repeat; something has happened in the motorcade route. There’s numerous people running up the hill here in Quiùxù Plaza alongside Rue Honxu. Several gendarmes are running toward the motorcade as I speak…stand-by!

Just a moment please! Something has happened in the motorcade route! Please stand-by.

L’Hôpital Dieu-There has been a shooting-L’Hôpital Dieu has been advised to standby to treat a severe gunshot wound. I repeat a shooting in the motorcade in the Little Yamato district. L’Hôpital Dieu has been advised to standby to treat a severe gunshot wound. The First-President’s car is now going past me.

It is driving at a very fast rate of speed, exceeding the speed limits, leaving the motorcade behind. Republican Guards are standing upright in the limousine, armed with sub-machine guns. It appears that someone in the limousine might have been hit by the gunfire.

The First-Presidential car is coming up now; we know it is the First-Presidential car. I can see the pink suit that Mme. Young was wearing. A Republican Guard is spread-eagled over the top of the car. We understand that Her Majesty the Emperor and the Prince-Consort are in the car, as well as Mme. Young.

We can’t see who has been hit, if anyone has been hit! But apparently something is wrong here, something is terribly wrong here.

I’m following the motorcade en route to L’Hôpital Dieu. We’re on the road to L’Hôpital Dieu, with the Republican Guard still spread-eagled over the First-President, his wife, the Empress and the Prince Consort. At this point, it looks like it could have been one, or two, or all four occupants of the car who have been victims of the shots fired-we don’t know.

Little Yamato Festooned

Lyons-sur-Mizouri, Louisianne 11 Fructidor CCXIV

Despite the threat of rain, Little Yamato, the largest contingent of Japanese outside of the home islands, is festooned in preparation for the arrival of the Emperor and First-President Jean-François Young. Meetings with local dignitaries will begin with an extended luncheon starting at 12:00 LST.

First-President Young and Her Majesty the Emperor will be visiting Japanese “quartiers” of Louisianne over the course of the next few days, after which time the two dignitaries will fly back to Japan, visiting major cities there where Louisiannan business has begun to flourish. The tour will be capped with the launch of the Sarutahico carrying the space habitat that will be used to test the effects of space on humans.

A public poll suggests incredible excitement at the arrival of the two figures, and it is expected that despite the threat of rain the motorcade will pass slowly through the throngs of citizens on its way to the luncheon at noon.
