A Nightmare in Paris! Three People Dead After Street Shooting

There is widespread unrest on the streets of Paris tonight as demonstrators clash with police following the tragic massacre of three Kurds in the heart of the city. 

William M. went on the rampage in the 10th arrondissement of the French capital on Friday morning, just days after he was bailed from prison to await trial for allegedly trying to murder two Sudanese refugees. 

One woman and two men were killed and at least three others seriously injured, sparking 'total panic' as bloodshed returned to the streets of the French capital.A hero officer intervened to wrench the small caliber pistol from the gunman, a 69-year-old retired train driver, who was released from prison just ten days ago. 

President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement this afternoon: 'The Kurds of France have been the target of a heinous attack in the heart of Paris. Thoughts to the victims, to the people who are struggling to live, to their families and loved ones. 

'Recognition to our law enforcement for their courage and composure.'

A search is now underway at the home of the shooter, in the 2nd arrondissement, as authorities ramp up the investigation and try to quell community concerns about whether enough was done to prevent such a tragedy.

The bloodshed sparked pandemonium in the streets as demonstrators clashed with police. 

Five officers have been injured in the hours since the shooting and at least one protester has been arrested.
