French authorities say the man shouted "this is for Syria" as he assaulted a police officer with a hammer outside Notre Dame Cathedral. Paris prosecutors have opened a terrorism investigation into the incident.

French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said the suspect wounded one policeman before he was shot and injured by other officers.
"His colleagues reacted with composure...and fired," Collomb told reporters gathered near the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral in central Paris.
He added that the alleged attacker appeared to have acted alone, and was carrying kitchen knives and the identification card of an Algerian student. Authorities were checking whether the document was authentic.
