A police officer fired this Wednesday on a man threatening him with a knife at Paris-CDG airport, the man identified since as a homeless man who died of his injuries.

The man was armed with a knife. He was killed Wednesday morning at Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport by police shooting, we learned from airport and police sources. “Demonstrating composure, the police neutralized this morning a threatening individual in possession of a knife at Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport”, indicates the Paris police headquarters on its Twitter account.

The facts took place at terminal 2F around 8:20 a.m., “a homeless person was bothering security agents and the border police (PAF) were called in to help evacuate him,” said an airport source.

When the forces of order arrived, the individual would have chosen to move away. He then changed his mind and ran towards the police brandishing a knife. A police officer would then have opened fire on the assailant, who was quickly taken care of by the emergency services. The man succumbed to his injuries.

“Only one shot was fired,” said the witness. The victim was put on a stretcher and evacuated to an area not accessible to passengers.

Two flagrant investigations were opened

One for “intentional homicide by a person holding public authority” and entrusted to the General Inspectorate of the National Police (IGPN).

A second for “attempted intentional homicide on a person holding public authority” and entrusted to the PAF of Roissy, adds the parquet floor of Bobigny.
