During the night from Friday to Saturday, a 40-year-old Sudanese threatened passers-by and the police with a butcher’s knife. Faced with his aggressiveness, the officials used their weapons around twenty times.

A man dressed in a djellaba and threatening the passengers of a Parisian tram with a butcher’s knife was shot dead by the police during the night from Friday to Saturday, Le Figaro learned from police and judicial sources.

The assailant, notably shot in the head, died on the spot. Aged 40, this man born in Sudan was unknown to the justice services. After the events, the Paris public prosecutor’s office opened two investigations: one for “attempted intentional homicide against a person holding public authority,” the other for “intentional violence by police officers leading to death…”
