French Police Officers Ambushed, Shot With Own Firearms

Two French police officers are seriously injured after being shot by assailants who stole their service weapons, according to reports.

The attack unfolded on late Wednesday night in Herblay, on the outskirts of Paris.

The officers had arrived to investigate at the scene of an attempted abduction when they were ambushed by three suspects who pulled them from their vehicle and beat them badly.

“The assailants opened fire on the two police officers who were already in bad shape," Le Parisien reports. “Six bullets were fired. The first victim, a 45-year-old police major, was injured in the thigh and knee. He was taken to Pontoise Hospital.”

“The second victim, a 30-year-old peacekeeper, was shot four times in the lower body. Suffering from a fractured skull, he was taken to Beaujon Hospital in Clichy (Hauts-de-Seine). At the scene, seven shell casings and a 9mm cartridge were discovered.”

The attackers reportedly made off with the firearms, a mobile phone, and a police radio.

"Total support to our 2 policemen violently attacked last night in the Val d'Oise during their duty," French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin wrote on Twitter.

"These acts - gunfire on our police force - are of an unheard-of violence. Everything is being done to find the perpetrators."

Authorities are still hunting for suspects at the time of this writing.
