Several people are reportedly dead after an attacker opened fire on a restaurant in central Paris on Friday night, as part of what witnesses say is a wave of violence still unfolding across the city.
French media say the shooter fired numerous times upon patrons dining at the restaurant, Le Petit Cambodge, with a Kalashnikov rifle and that he or she is still at large.
Witnesses have also reported hearing an explosion near the Stade de France, the country’s national stadium, which is hosting a soccer game between France and Germany, as well as a shooting at a night club.
One witness, Stephane Hannache, was broadcasting on Periscope during a portion of the attack. Shots can be heard at the ten-minute mark in his video.
