While the gunman who was shot is now dead, the second gunman has yet to be apprehended. There are now reports coming out saying he has stormed a mall and begun firing but police have yet to confirm.
The shooting occurred near the location of the French Presidential debate. It was believed to have possibly targeted conservative candidate Marine LePen, who was at the debate.
Minutes after the attack, President Donald Trump addressed it and sent his condolences to Paris. He also promised our attitude towards these attacks are finally changing and we will do what is need to stop them.
Please, take a moment to pray for the people of France. They are in serious trouble and need us now more than ever before.
