No indication yet of the identity of the perpetrator, but the fact that police are already saying it was a “terrorist act” indicates that it likely wasn’t drug dealers or “right-wing extremists.”
“BREAKING: ‘Terror’ gunmen kill cop as Paris placed on LOCKDOWN,” by Rachel O’Donoghue, Daily Star, April 20, 2017 (thanks to Doc):
AT LEAST one cop is dead after two gunmen opened fire in a busy tourist area of Paris this evening.
Another officer was apparently injured during the shooting at the city’s famous Champs-Elysées.
A police source said one of the gunmen was killed, adding it was most probably a “terrorist act”.
But a second shooter may still be on the run….
People have been warned to keep way from the famous boulevard as a massive cordon is put in place.
