In a tweet via their Amaq News Agency, Islamic State claimed responsibility for the shooting of three police officers in Paris, France. Three police officers were shot while in their vehicle, one of the officers was killed and the other two were wounded. The identity of the gunman has not been released yet but he was known by French security services for radical Islamist activities. French police are looking for possible accomplices as well.
The French Interior Ministry, confirming the shooting, said two police officers were “seriously wounded” and that security forces gunned down the attacker. The ministry said the person fired on a police car.
She said the attacker appeared to act alone, but other officials said it was too soon to say whether he might have had an accomplice.- Washington Post
