40 year old Congolese Ludovic Boumbas, who grew up in Lille, northern France was having a birthday meal with friends when gunmen opened fire at people sitting on the terrace of La Belle Epique bar in the Rue de Charonne in the 11th district.
A friend told Mail Online:
- “Ludo threw himself to protect a girl and took the bullet. She was also shot, but survived and is in the hospital.”
His friends described him as someone who loved people and travelling.
- “He was just one of life’s good, good people,” they said.
