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.
