Paris shooter fired automatic weapon at police
The assailant in the Paris shooting “got out of the vehicle and shot at the police vehicle with an automatic weapon, killing one policeman instantly,” French Ministry of Interior Spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet told BFMTV, a CNN affiliate network in France.
The man “then ran away, managing to shoot and wound two other policemen. Other policemen engaged and shot and killed the attacker,” Brandet said.
The attack started around 9 p.m. local time in Paris, when a vehicle stopped next to a police vehicle stationed on the side of the road. Policemen were both inside and outside the vehicle. The shooter got out of his car and started firing at police, Brandet said on BFMTV.
The Interior Ministry said police are looking for potential accomplices.
Brandet said there are no police operations elsewhere in Paris outside of the Champs-Elysées.
