Shooting at a Christmas Market in France in latest terror attack – 4 dead, 11 injured

French police are saying at least four have been shot dead with at least 11 others injured by a gunman in Strasbourg tonight at the city’s Christmas market.

According to witnesses the shots began around 8pm near the Christmas market.

“There were gunshots and people running everywhere,” a shopkeeper told BFMTV. “It lasted about 10 minutes.” It has been reported that several of the injured are in a critical condition.

One waiter in a nearby restaurant told BFMTV that staff and customers tried to save the life of one diner who had stepped outside and was shot, saying they used napkins to try to stem the blood. The man later died.

The incident has been declared an act of terrorism and an enquiry has been opened. France’s Interior Minister, Christophe Castaner, told reporters that the gunman “has been identified” and was known to police.
