BREAKING: Police Attacked In Paris, France; Suspect Had Gas Tanks and AK-47

There’s been another terrorist attack in Paris, details are still coming out but here’s what we have so far.

It looks like a man intentionally slammed into a police van in Paris. No one was injured in that incident, but the attacker and some interesting things are coming out about the situation. As reported by Fox News:

A suspect who tried to attack security forces on the Champs-Elysees shopping district in Paris Monday afternoon — when he rammed his car into a police van — had a rifle and explosives in his vehicle, French investigators said.

The attacker died shortly after the incident, the French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said. The attacker, a 31-year-old man, was badly burned after his car exploded when he deliberately crashed it into a police van. The police van caught fire, but it was quickly contained, officials said. The bomb squad was called to the scene.

Authorities discovered a gas tank and an AK-47 rife in the attacker’s car, Fox News confirmed. The man was from a suburb in Paris and had been previously flagged for extremism, French police said.

Details are still coming out about the incident as it is investigated by French anti-terrorism authorities.
