The suspected gunman involved in last weeks shooting in Paris was charged Monday. Three people were killed in the attack at a Kurdish cultural centre and a nearby hairdressing salon Friday.

The 69-year-old suspect admitted to a “pathological” hatred of migrants, French prosecutors said. He spent nearly a day in a psychiatric facility before being returned to police custody on Sunday.

Identified as retired train driver named as William M., the suspect told police he had become “depressed” and “suicidal” after his home was burgled in 2016.

The judge charged the suspect with murder, attempted murder because of race, ethnicity, nationality or religion as well as for the unauthorised procurement and possession of a weapon, a judicial source said, according to AFP.

Three other people were injured in the attack.

On Monday several people marched in the 10th district, chanting “Our martyrs do not die” in Kurdish and demanding “truth and justice.”

Some in the Kurdish community said that they suspect Turkey’s involvement in Friday’s shooting. However, French investigators have not reacted to the allegations.

“We decided to come as soon as we heard about Friday’s terrorist attack,” one young woman told AFP. “We are afraid of the Turkish community and secret services.”

According to French media, the suspect is a gun enthusiast with a history of weapons offences. Earlier this month, he had been released on bail. He was convicted for armed violence in 2016 by a court in Seine-Saint-Denis. The following year, he was convicted for illegally possessing a firearm.

In his confession, the suspect said that he had planned to kill people in the northern Paris suburb of Seine-Saint-Denis, which has a large immigrant population.
