+++ AT LEAST 12 DEAD INCLUDING EDITOR AND
LEAD CARTOONIST IN SHOOTING
AT PARIS HQ
Gunmen had precise location and asked for journalist victims by name, having walked up two flights of stairs, down a hallway/corridor to the Paris based magazines offices.
The 2 (possibly 3) gunmen were armed with a Rocket Propelled Grenade Launcher and AK 47 assault rifles. They escaped by shooting at police, then shooting dead one officer lying injured and helpless on the pavement, hijacking a car, ditching it, then switched to another hijacked car, and reportedly heading East out of Paris.
Iphone footage by magazine staff on the roof of the building records several shots fired, as other more graphic footage now taken down shows police victim gunned down and then shot dead on pavement.
