Man ‘beheaded’ by gunman ‘shouting Allahu Akbar’ in Paris

A gunman ‘shouting Allahu Akbar’ has been shot by police in Paris after he reportedly ‘beheaded’ a man in the street.

While initial reports were that a man had been ‘beheaded’ by a gunman in the Conflans-Saint-Honorine area of Paris, police sources later confirmed that he had been stabbed in the throat. A local official said that when police arrived at the scene, the gunman began threatening them with his weapons.

“The unidentified killer then fled to the nearby town of Eragny-sur-Oise, around two miles away, where he refused to surrender. He was waving a gun by this time and further threatened officers,” said the source. “This is when he was shot dead by police. Around ten shots were heard.”

Agence France-Presse reported that the ‘beheaded’ victim was found at 5:30pm near a school.

France’s Anti-terror prosecutor PNAT is now opening a case into the incident.
