4.21.17: Officers shot at in Champs-Elysees shopping district in Paris
PARIS (AP) — The prosecutor’s office leading the investigation into the shooing in Paris yesterday, says investigators found a pump-action shotgun and knives in the gunman’s car.
Police quickly shot and killed the man after he opened fire on officers, killing one and injuring two others in the Champs-Elysees shopping district.
Authorities say that the man had been detained in February for threatening police but was freed.
There will be extra security in Paris as the first round of the French elections are taking place weekend with residents going to the polls on Sunday.
