Man shot after trying to attack cop with hammer at Notre Dame

Written by  Yaron Steinbuch

Police in Paris are responding to an incident at the Notre-Dame Cathedral where a man apparently attacked a police officer with a hammer before being shot, according to reports.

Authorities have told people to stay away from the area, one of the French capital’s most popular tourist sites, according to the BBC.

Preliminary reports suggest a hammer-wielding man attacked a cop and was then shot.

The attacker is believed to have survived the shooting in the northeastern corner of the square in front of Notre-Dame, Metro of the UK reported.

“Square in front of #NotreDame Intervention being the number of police, avoid the area,” police tweeted.

French Journalist David Rahul Métreau said: “All that I can say is that a vehicle resembling an armored truck is in front of the Notre Dame Cathedral,” the Mirror reported.

“Loud bangs just now at Notre Dame. Crowd scattered. Sirens going off,” witness Mark Johnson posted on Twitter.

Another witness said: “We’re trapped in Notre-Dame de Paris, something is happening outside. Police sirens can be heard. They are not letting anyone in or out.”

Mark Johnson from Austin, Texas, tweeted: “Loud bangs just now at Notre Dame. Crowd scattered. Sirens going off,” Metro reported.

France is in a state of emergency since attacks by jihadists in the city left 130 people dead in 2015.

Allah's representative does the Mahomet thing. But it was not Islam. It was extremism or terrorism. Take your choice.

Must have been a Dumb-o-crat....no one else could be that stupid. Never go to a gun fight without a gun. Hammers just don't get it done!

Hope they can really question this Loser Thug!!! Forget PC!
Until the French are ready to enter the Muslin zone and do search and seizure they are not going to get anywhere. They have been afraid to enter the area. There are good Muslims who are just as afraid because of threats from these Losers.
This is a war and there is no room for PC in war!

First, prayers for the police officer who was attacked with the hammer.

Second, when will France learn from all this hammer violence? France needs hammer control, and they need it now!

Third, has the press blamed this attack on President Trump yet? Trump has been involved in many construction projects where hammers were used, so this is obviously something he condones.

HAR! I understand that CNN & MSNBC have not weighed in yet. Stay tuned for their pithy remarks.

" France is in a state of emergency since attacks by jihadists in the city left 130 people dead in 2015."

But have yet to secure their borders and recently elected a president who wants to bring all the left wing loon Americans to France too. They are already at an over 40% income tax - when these expatriates show up they can count on that tax rate going much higher. You will have to support these nut jobs too.

The European Union really screwed-up when they opened borders. France has been hit hard, and it is a shame that more than a hundred have died in the recent past. Unfortunately, the EU are still welcoming un-vetted terrorists. No wonder there is a Brexit movement, and the people are right! Consider that POS Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, insisting there is no reason to be concerned about terrorism attacks- Good Gawd! They say Americans are crazy because half of us are loudly fighting against open borders and allowing the same to happen here. We elected a controversial conservative President who agreed with that, and then the liberal left became obstructionists. It is unimaginable that common people anywhere would feel good about risking their family and homeland to unknown combatants- bombers, vehicle, gun and knife wielding religious zealots! I myself and most Americans do feel tremendous sympathy for France, London, and any other country who suffers human tragedy by Muslim extremists, or any other terrorism. We don't want that here either. We will never forget the 3,000 people in New York City who died from terrorist attacks, 19 Muslim Islamic men affiliated with al-Qaeda changed our world.
