Amateur video shows masked attackers who killed 12 in Paris

January 7, 2015

Paris residents captured chilling video images of two masked gunmen shooting a police officer after an attack at a French satirical newspaper.

In the video, the gunmen armed with assault rifles are seen running up Wednesday to an injured police officer, who lies squirming on the ground. The police officer raises his hands up before one of the assailants shoots him in the head at a close range.

The two men then get back into a black car and drive away, with one pausing to pick up a sneaker that fell out of it.

Other video, apparently of the same scene, showed one of the gunmen crying “Allahu akbar!” — Arabic for “God is great”— as gunshots rang out.

The videos showed the killers moving deliberately and calmly.
