Unfortunately every week there seems to be another global tragedy that affects the world. This week, a gunman unexpectedly attacked police authorities in Paris, Thursday night. The encounter turned into a deadly shootout which led to one police officer being shot and killed and two others being injured.
The suspect tried to flee on foot but was eventually shot dead during his attempt to run. Authorities do not believe the gunman acted alone. A warrant has been ordered in hopes of finding another suspect as well.
