2 dead, at least 12 injured in shooting near Christmas market in Strasbourg, France
A search is underway for the suspect, who is on a terrorist watch list, officials said

Dec. 12, 2018
By Kalhan Rosenblatt, Nancy Ing and David K. Li

At least two people are dead and 12 wounded after a shooting Tuesday night in the French city of Strasbourg, with police searching for a suspect who is on a terrorist watch list and whose home officers raided earlier in the day in a burglary probe.

The shooting took place around 8 p.m. near a Christmas market in Strasbourg, France, that attracts millions of tourists every year.

The suspect was still at large a few hours later, and at one point police were engaged in a firefight in the neighborhood of Neudorf in Strasbourg. It wasn't immediately clear if the firefight was connected to the deadly shooting, officials said.

Police went to arrest him for Burglary this morning.. but he was not there. Police found hand-grenades at his home.. and obviously he also has at least one gun?
So HOW did cops who were "watching him" miss him acquiring weapons.

Reports: Shooter had a knife and an automatic weapon (rifle? pistol)

Individual allegedly known to police for his radicalised views.

Preventative arrests for #GiletsJaunes but NOT for known terrorists. #strasbourg

Chérif Chekkat: who is the Strasbourg shooting suspect?

French police say the gunman is one of 12,000 ‘gangster-jihadists’ who exist under the radar

French investigators call them the “gangster-jihadists” – young men, often from poor immigrant backgrounds, who start with petty crime, drug dealing and robbery and graduate to terrorism.

Strasbourg Shooter shouted "Alahu Akbar"...

Media failed to mention that for 24 hours... :roll

Even after many hours, for BBC "the motive for the incident remains unclear." :doh

French police release image of Christmas market attack suspect

The 29-year-old man was wounded after being cornered by armed police but managed to escape, triggering a huge manhunt.

French police have released a photo of the man suspected of killing two people and leaving another brain dead at a Christmas market in Strasbourg.

Cheriff Chekatt, 29, is said to have shouted "Allahu Akbar" before the attack in France that left 13 people injured - six of them seriously.

The killer, who opened fire with a handgun and used a knife to stab people, is still on the run after he was shot in the arm during a gunfight with police.

He escaped in a taxi and there are concerns he may have fled to Germany where vehicles are now being checked at the border.
