At least 2 people are dead, including the suspect in a stabbing spree in Paris on Saturday. At least 8 people have been injured, 2 critically. The suspect reportedly yelled “Allahu Akbar” before being shot and killed by police.
Journalist Charles Pellegrin was at the scene and tweeted: “I came out of a comedy show near Opera in central Paris and was immediately told to go back in because there was a madman with a knife.
“Once back inside we heard sirens and 2 gunshots. I then spoke to eyewitnesses who told me a man stabbed multiple people at random. “The eyewitnesses then told me police tried to taser the attacker. This did not work, so they fired two shots.
