A man was shot dead after a Halloween party at a nightclub in Saint-Laurent-du-Var, on the French Riviera, on Saturday.

At about 2am Sunday, a 32-year-old man was shot in the head after a fight broke out between two groups of men in a nightclub in an industrial area of the town.

Security at the establishment tried to break up the fight. When the two groups went outside, one man reportedly pulled a gun and shot the victim, whose girlfriend was standing beside him.

Police have arrested two men on suspicion of murder and another three men, including a security guard at the club, in relation to the fight before the shooting.
