STRASBOURG, France (WTOL) - According to AP, a counter-terror prosecutor is on the way to identify if the man killed by police was the shooting suspect in the Strasbourg shooting that happened earlier this week.

French authorities detained five people as they hunted Wednesday for a suspected extremist who sprayed gunfire at one of Europe’s most famous Christmas markets in the eastern city of Strasbourg, killing three and wounding at least 13 and putting the whole country on edge anew.
