    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.

    1. Should give LePen a bump

    Which given the timing, might have been the intent.

    The only positive thing would be if Mélenchon comes second against her in first place — as that is his best path to victory.

    Pleased to have matching hands and feet.

      2. But it's also hers.

        3. Mélenchon vs. Le Pen — I would take that match-up over any other

        But she would not be a shoe-in against any likely other top-two finisher — I would just expect Mélenchon to be the one to turn out a demographic that would not be significant in those other match-ups.

        Pleased to have matching hands and feet.
