“The investigations must in particular specify the circumstances of the facts, the identity of the accused, as well as his possible links with the female victim,” concluded the prosecution.

“The police intervened and brought him back here (to the police station) and it was when he was picked up that he stole the weapon” from a civil servant and “seriously” injured two police officers.

What do we know about the victims?

The two officials, “seriously” injured, were immediately transported to hospital, said the police prefect.

One person’s life is in jeopardy, the other is in “relative emergency”.

“We are very concerned about the state of health (of the two police officers). We are all very worried,” underlined Laurent Nuñez, providing his “support to the staff of the XIII police statione », “saluting their courage and their responsiveness”.

What do we know about the attacker?

The man was “seriously” injured by a return shot, said the Paris police prefect.

The prosecution specified that the accused “injured in the chest, had been taken to hospital”. “His vital prognosis is not engaged,” he added.

Where are the three investigations?

Around midnight, the Paris police chief, Laurent Nuñez, who was accompanied by the Paris prosecutor Laure Beccuau, went to the scene.

He announced that a judicial investigation was underway and the Parisian PJ responsible for establishing “the circumstances” of this tragedy.

The Paris prosecutor’s office said that three investigations had been opened. Two are entrusted to 3e DPJ, one for “attempted murder of the woman”, the other for “attempted murder of persons holding public authority”.

The 3e investigation was entrusted to the IGPN (the “police of police”) for “intentional violence with a weapon by a person holding public authority”, as is always the case when a police officer uses his weapon.

A rare drama

A shooting occurring on the premises of a police station is extremely rare.
