Man fatally shot at Paris' Orly Airport after attempting to seize soldier's gun

Paris' Orly Airport temporarily suspended all flights Saturday after security officers fatally shot a man who had reportedly wrestled a soldier to the ground at the airport in an attempt to grab the soldier's gun. No bystanders were injured, but 3,000 were evacuated from Paris' second-largest international airport.

Prior to the airport incident on Saturday morning, the man reportedly shot at police officers during a traffic stop, wounding one officer in the face, before fleeing and stealing a woman's car. The stolen car was reportedly found nearby Orly Airport.

Interior Minister Bruno Le Roux said the man's identity, which has yet to be revealed, is "known to police and intelligence services." France's anti-terrorism division is handling the investigation.
