French authorities have detained a 25-year-old on suspicion of helping the gunman who killed three Jewish children and a rabbi at a Jewish school in Toulouse in southern France in March 2012.

The man has not been named, but a formal investigation is working to determine whether he helped the gunman, Mohamed Merah, steal the scooter the gunman used during the Toulouse shooting.

Police have also kept Merah’s brother, Abdelkader, in custody since last March on suspicion of aiding the shooter. He denies involvement, according to Reuters.
