Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe says it is an "unacceptable situation" after a 17-year-old boy was fatally shot in the French capital.

A French police officer is being investigated for homicide following the teenager's death after he failed to comply with an order to stop his car, the local prosecutor's office said - as per The Guardian.

The report says the officer fired at the boy, who has been named as Nael M, and he subsequently died from his wounds in the suburb of Nanterre on Tuesday.

Now, Mbappe has sent his regards to the teenager's family, saying this "angel" was taken too soon.

He tweeted: "I feel bad for my France. An unacceptable situation. All my thoughts go out to Naël's family and loved ones, this little angel who left far too soon."

The article adds that a video shared on social media shows two police officers beside the car, a Mercedes AMG, one of which shoots as the driver pulls away.

Clashes have since broken out between youths and police. Moreover, some groups reportedly set alight barricades and garbage bins, smashed up a bus stop, and threw firecrackers at police, who responded with tear gas and grenades.

Nine people have been arrested in what has been the second fatal incident from a traffic stop in 2023 in France.
