Paris police have opened fire on a car that tried to crash a barricade set up on Place de la Concorde ahead of the final arrival of the Tour de France cycling race, a police official said Sunday.
The shooting incident took place as the French capital is on maximum alert to welcome the final stage of the Tour de France.
Luc Poignant, a spokesman with the SGP police union, said officers were finishing setting up the barricades for the race when the car tried to crash through the barriers. Officers opened fire on the car, which ultimately drove away.
