Manhunt after two assailants shoot police officer near Paris

French authorities are searching for two assailants who shot a police officer in a government security building in the Paris suburb of Pantin on Sunday.

Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said the officer surprised the two attackers during his rounds early Sunday.

One of the assailants grabbed the officer’s sidearm and shot him.


They’re suggesting it may be a burglary gone wrong… but who burgles a “Government security” building?

    Shows we do live in different times when terrorism is actually most peoples first thought.

    Must have been a giant bug, because they sent “RAiD” exterminators.

    I’m sure it has nothing to do with islam.

    If they were robbers and they shot him at the place they were robbing then it’s therefore workplace violence.

  • The French/Islamic civil war has started.

      Let’s hope so. Paraphrasing one of the Charlie Hebdo writers: “Better to die standing, than on your knees”

        In Europes case, better to get the party started now beforel it’s too late and we’re grossly outnumbered.

    France has a muslim problem

    Muslims aren’t actually the sharpest needles in the sowing kit, you know?
    It’s not out of the question that they may have thought it was a Shia mosque (or vice versa) or a Benefits Office, a slave market, a beheading party, an FGM training session or even a young-goat auction.
    You really never know with these retards – trying to figure out what is going on in their minds is like spending an eternity wading waist deep in a festering 1400 year old swamp filled with stools – an exercise in total futility.

    was this part of a possible muslim outreach programme gone horribly wrong?

    No wonder we have problems when the police are so afraid that they can’t even be honest about what kind of attack it was.

    Perhaps it was something like a bugging attempt or b&e gone wrong. Weekend armed police guards in a security related government building in France sounds very “odd”.
