At least one dead in central Paris stabbing

A madman with a knife attacked peopleâ€"seemingly at randomâ€"in a busy section of Paris Saturday before he was fatally gunned down by police.

One victim died and four others were wounded in the attack, carried out near the Palais Garnier opera house in the Second Arrondissement, according to Parisian police.

Two of the wounded individuals are in critical condition, said police, who confirmed that the suspect was killed around 9 p.m.

The assailant told police "Kill me or I'll kill you," according to police sources.

"Five people attacked in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris by an individual armed with a knife: one victim is dead, two are seriously injured and two are lightly injured. The assailant is deceased," Parisian police tweeted.

"I just saw the man knifing random people," wrote Twitter user Esohe Denise Odaro.

Diners at restaurants along rue Saint-Augustin panicked and took cover.

Interior minister Gerard Collomb tweeted about the attack Saturday.

"Attack in Paris: i salute the cold blood and responsiveness of the police forces who neutralized the assailant. My first thoughts are with the victims of this abhorrent act."
