France Interior Minister Christophe Castaner shared details on Twitter of how the incident unfolded. Around 9 p.m., police officers spotted a suspicious individual on Rue du Lazaret who fit the description of the suspect from Tuesday night’s shooting, Castaner wrote in translated tweets. After the officers addressed him, the suspect turned around and opened fire at the officers, following which they responded, he wrote.
Looking forward to the protest tomorrow.
