Two Police Officers Shot In Second Paris Gun Attack

Two police officers have been shot and injured after a second, unconnected attack in Paris in as many days – occurring just hours after the attack on Charlie Hebdo.

A gunman has attacked two police officers at a metro station in the south of Paris. The attacker shot and injured the two officers at the Porte de Chatillon metro station – located along the border of the Malakoff and Montrouge suburbs – at around 8am, local time.

One of the police officers is reportedly in a serious condition.

The attacker then, reportedly, fled into the subway. Officers followed in pursuit briefly, but later recalled back to the scene – the suspect evading capture.

The attack occurred just hours after gunmen raided the French magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 10 journalists and two policemen. Eleven more people were wounded and four of them are in a serious condition.
