Paris police shoot two people dead in night of unrest after Macron win
The Metro says Two people have been shot dead by police in Paris, hours after President Emmanuel Macron’s re-election.
It is unclear if the incident in the centre of the French capital was linked to the Presidential election, but it came as riot police clashed with demonstrators unhappy with the result nearby.
Officers opened fire on a car that was hurtling towards them, killing two people inside on Paris’ oldest bridge, the Pont Neuf, a police source said.
The vehicle had refused to stop at a police checkpoint shortly after midnight.
