Man Shot Dead At Paris Airport After Snatching A Soldier's Gun. Photos

A convicted criminal with links to radical Islam has been shot dead at Paris Orly airport after snatching a soldier’s gun and fleeing into a McDonald’s. Less than two hours earlier, a female officer had been shot in the head in a northern Paris suburb uring a routine stop-and-search operation.
Police now believe the shooting in Stains, where three officers were shot at, was carried out by the 39-year-old man, who was later killed. After fleeing the scene, the man stole a woman’s car at gunpoint. Today’s incidents come as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit Paris, where they have met with victims of terrorism. The man killed at the airport had previously been jailed for drug trafficking and was radicalised in prison, according to reports in Paris. He has not been formally identified, but was a homeless French national on the run from the authorities, according to police sources. France’s anti-terrorism prosecutor has opened an investigation into the shootings.
