Man attacks Parisian police officers who were garrisoned, killing at least 4 officers
A man armed with a knife entered a police headquarters in Paris. Although the attacker was killed, he killed 4 soldiers, including a woman. In addition, another person remains in intensive care as a result of the injuries received.
However, the attacker was no stranger to the institution. He was an administrative official of the police station, who had a little more than 20 years of service in the institution. So far the reasons for the attack are unknown, although it surprised everyone who knew this person for more than two decades.
Paris mourns her own this afternoon after this terrible attack on the @prefpolice. Heavy casualties, several policemen lost their lives. On behalf of myself and the Parisians, my first thoughts go out to the families of the victims and their loved ones (…) During the Paris Council, we will pay tribute to the victims and salute the unwavering commitment of the police forces to the service of the security of Parisians. We know what we owe them. Said the mayor of Paris on Twitter.
Several roads in the sector were closed to control the situation and prevent further attacks. Once it was known that the situation was under control, they were reopened to their usual traffic.
The police controlled the sector, they reviewed possible attacks, but they individualized the fact to this man.
