One policeman and one attacker killed in Champs-Elysees shooting in Paris
ISIS has already claimed responsibility, the despicable religious fanatics. From France 24:
A gunman killed one police officer and wounded two others before being killed himself in an attack on the Champs-Elysées in the heart of the French capital Thursday evening. The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility.
The officer who was killed in the attack was shot while in a police car waiting at a red light by an attacker driving by, a police union representative said on Twitter.
Paris police spokeswoman Johanna Primevert told AP that the attacker targeted police guarding the area near the Franklin Roosevelt metro station at the centre of the avenue, shortly after 9pm Paris time. The police officer who was killed was 37 years old.
Police officials say the chief suspect was a 39 year-old from a suburb east of Paris. They are conducting searches at the home of the assailant.OzoneTom likes this"Identity politics is the last refuge of the politically incompetent." --Me, with a hat tip to Isaac Asimov
