Right about now he’s realizing there are no 72 virgins awaiting his arrival.

(Fox News) — The suspect in an radical Islam-linked killing spree in southern France was killed after police raided his apartment to end a 32-hour standoff, the French interior minister said.

Mohamed Merah, who holed up in an apartment in the southern city of Toulouse, was found in the apartment’s bathroom and exchanged fire with police, the minister said. He apparently jumped from the window and continued firing until he hit the ground.

“The killer came out of the bathroom, firing with extreme violence,” Claude Gueant, the interior minister, said, adding that the RAID squad had “never seen an assault like it.”

“Mohamed Merah jumped out the window, gun in hand, continuing to fire. He was found dead on the ground,” Gueant said.
