31 July 1944 Sldr Le Roux a claim for Fw190

Did Le Roux shoot down an Fw190 on this date? Some sources claim he did, others that his victory was an Fw190 which flew into the ground while chasing him... the mystery is that apparently he was out of ammunition when the Fw190 crashed. Did he use up the ammo during a dogfight that ended in a Fw190 being shot down and then the second Fw190 went down chasing him?

As I have said in a previous post if he was being chased then there'd be no evidence to confirm a kill gained by outmaneuvering another aircraft...and he is a bit of a "Line-Shooter" . However I know of at least three pilots (Mann, Meagher and Skalski) who are credited with victories in similar circumstances.
