Trump Tweets Media The First 100 Days and Terror in Paris

Details behind the shooting are still developing, so many are left wondering: What exactly happened in Paris? And what can you say - it just never ends.

"It looks like another terrorist attack".

"It is a very, very awful thing that's going on in the world".

"We have to be strong, we have to be vigilant, and I've been saying it for a long time", Mr. Trump added. The assailant was killed in the showdown with police, Paris police have said.

One eyewitness said a man got out of a vehicle and began shooting "with a Kalashnikov", hitting a policeman.

The unidentified shooter was then reportedly killed by security forces. The shooter was shot dead by police, officials said.

At approximately 5:30 p.m.

French President Francois Hollande has scheduled an emergency meeting following shootings of officers, while another emergency ministerial meeting is to take in place on Friday. "And this is a very delicate period for them, just three days before the election", the Italian prime minister said.

ISIS has claimed credit for the attack. A second man, suspected of being linked to the shooting, surrendered himself in Belgium.

The identity of the attacker wasn't immediately known, but Paris police said he targeted police officers along the high-profile Champs-Elysees shopping district.
