PARIS (AP) – France’s anti-terrorism prosecutor says that searches are under way after an attack on police guarding the Champs-Elysees shopping district in Paris.
Prosecutor Francois Molins said that investigators have verified the identity of the gunman in Thursday night’s attack and are trying to determine whether he had accomplices. The identity was not released.
Three police officials say at least one location in the eastern Paris suburbs was being searched early Friday.
One police officer and the attacker were killed in the incident.
