Driving the wrong way, trying to hit Police. What is going on here? 2 dead, 1 injured??
The vehicle was driving against traffic on the Pont Neuf in central Paris on Sunday night, and was trying to hit the officers, according to a police source.

A security perimeter has been set up at the scene in the heart of the capital where a judge was expected to arrive.

France's police oversight body, the General Inspectorate of the National Police, is also expected to be deployed, as is typical following an officer's use of a firearm.

A witness told Le Figaro: 'A car was parked in the wrong direction along the Vert-Galant square on the Pont Neuf. The police approached to control the individuals present in the vehicle by pointing automatic weapons at him.

'The driver rushed off towards the police at full speed. The police fired immediately.'
