NextImg:Sudanese man shot dead after threatening Paris police with meat cleaver

A Sudanese man was shot dead early Saturday after he allegedly threatened police with a meat cleaver in a Paris train station.

The unidentified man, who was clad in an Arab-style robe, was at Butte Duhat Rouge station around 3 a.m. when he was spotted with the weapon as he “brandished a Koranic book,” according to journalist Laurent Obertone.

French police tried to subdue the man by tasering him, and when he was asked to drop the meat cleaver, he refused and advanced toward officers, prosecutors said, AFP reported.

Four officers then shot their pistols a total of 20 times, killing him.

CCTV images show what appears to be the man under a white sheet in the early morning hours after he was shot.

No officer was injured, but they were taken to the hospital in “shock,” prosecutors said.

The assailant was born in Sudan in 1984 and has no previous criminal record, according to AFP.
