Knifeman gunned down by police machine gun AFTER ‘killing one and wounding another’


A knifeman was shot dead by police machine gun fire in Bordeaux Wednesday night after he allegedly stabbed one passer-by to death and wounded another.

Number of Victims

The two persons she stabbed were taken to Bordeaux University Hospital, but one actually died at the scene and the other is in intensive care after he suffered ‘very serious stab wounds’.

The incident happened just before 8pm last night in the south-west French city, at end of the evening rush hour.

Prosecutors confirmed that the dead person stabbed in the throat was an Algerian national, aged 36. 

An investigating source reveals a police officer used his machine gun to kill the assailant on the Left Bank of the Garonne river to stop the attack.

TV journalist Amaury Bucco posted a video of one of the alleged stabbings, saying the attacker was a ‘man dressed in a djellaba and armed with a knife’ close to the Pont de Pierre [Peter Bridge].

The bloodbath came on a night of high tension across France, following warnings of an attack on football stadium by ISIS.

Why He Stabbed the Victims

In what could be the motive of the stabbings, witnesses said they saw the knifeman ‘attack pedestrians with a bladed weapon after telling them off for drinking’.

An investigating source said: ‘The man was set upon in Place de la Bourse [Stock Exchange Square] and was stabbed alongside at least two others.

‘The attacker had reproached a group of North African people for having a drink – possibly because they should have been fasting during Ramadan.’

Muslims avoid all food and drink during the Ramadan fast. The period of religious prayer ended April 9 this year.
