A female police officer has been shot dead and a street cleaner left injured in the second attack to hit Paris in less than 24 hours. The officer, who has not been named, died this morning following the shooting in Montrouge, in the south of the city. The street cleaner was also hurt in the attack. Both had been described by a police source as being in a ‘very serious condition’ after the shooting, which is not known if it’s linked to the massacre at the Charlie Hebdo offices on Wednesday. That massacre claimed 12 lives, including those of two police officers. Today shots rang out in Montrouge at the start of the morning rush hour, with an M5 assault rifle believed to have been used.
