Gunman wearing bomb vest ‘beheads a man outside Paris school’ before being shot by cops10/16/2020
A GUNMAN thought to be wearing a bomb vest has been shot dead by cops near Paris after allegedly beheading another man with a knife.
The first bloodbath took place in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, a suburb some 25 miles from the centre of the French capital on Friday.
An investigating source said: "The body of a decapitated man was found at around 5.30 in the afternoon.
"When police arrived, the person thought to be responsible was still present and threatened them with his weapons."
The unidentified killer then fled to the nearby town of Eragny-sur-Oise, around two miles away, where he refused to surrender.
"He was waving a gun by this time and further threatened officers,’ said the source.
"This is when he was shot dead by police. Around ten shots were heard."
Witnesses watched the man decapitating his unnamed victim – who was also male – in broad daylight, and close to a school.
Officers rushed to the scene after the alarm was raising, and watched the killer running away, towards Eragny.
By 7pm, the scene of the suspected murder, and the scene where the killer was himself gunned down, had been sealed off.
Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin was "making his way to the scene of the attack," said a spokesman for his ministry, who also confirmed as a terrorist enquiry.
