France: Gunman, who shot dead 3 police officers, found dead

A man who allegedly shot three police officers dead in a French village has now been found dead, Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said on Wednesday.

The police officers were responding to a call over domestic violence in the central region of Puy-de-Dome when they were shot by a 48-year-old man.

Police approached the house shortly after midnight and were hit by gunfire as they attempted to rescue a woman. The man initially shot and killed one officer and wounded another. Two other officers were then shot dead.
