Police: Killing of Paris policewoman linked to Charlie Hebdo gunmen

Officials have told French media that the killing of a policewoman in Paris on Thursday is linked to the Charlie Hebdo killers.

BBC News reports that police have identified the shooting suspect in the policewoman's murder. Reuters reports that the suspect who allegedly killed the policewoman was a member of the same terrorist group as the two suspects in the Charlie Hebdo attack. Bernard Cazeneuve, France's interior minister, originally stated that there wasn't a known connection between the officer's death and Wednesday's attack on the Charlie Hebdo office.

Meanwhile, authorities are searching for two brothers who are allegedly behind the Charlie Hebdo murders, who are apparently ready to die in "martyrdom."
