Police in France have shot a man dead after he reportedly attacked two people with a screwdriver.

After the violent assaults on a maintenance worker and a policeman, municipal police in Aubervilliers, on the outskirts of Paris, opened fire, killing the attacker.

Karine Franclet, the Mayor of Aubervilliers, said: “We strongly condemn this unacceptable act of violence which led to this dramatic attack.

“Any attack against those who take care of our city is intolerable,” reports AFP.

A police source also said to AFP: “This morning in Aubervilliers, a maintenance worker was struck several times by a screwdriver.

“A local police officer, attempting to intervene, was also injured in the arm. A local police officer on the scene drew his weapon.”
