Religion of Peace Strikes Again in European City

The area around the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was closed off Tuesday after a man attacked a police officer.

French media reports that shots were fired after a man lunged at a police officer with a hammer. Another officer opened fire at the attacker, who was “neutralized” with a shot to the thorax. The officer sustained minor injuries.

Eyewitnesses said that tourists fled in panic to seek cover, BBC reports. Police are investigating the incident as a possible terror attack.

Police foiled a planned attack by the cathedral in September after discovering a car packed with seven gas cylinders and documents in Arabic.
