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.

There is speculation that these attacks may be connected to the terrorist group ISIS but has not yet been confirmed. It should be noted that ISIS has no problem claiming their attacks so it should be interesting to see if they respond.

Our prayers go out to Paris once more.
