PARIS, France (1010 WINS/AP) -- A French police union official says an attacker armed with a knife killed at least four officers inside Paris police headquarters before he was shot and killed.

Union official Yves Lefebvre said the attack happened around 1 p.m. on Thursday at the headquarters located just across the street from Notre Dame Cathedral.

The attacker is said to be an employee, but it wasn’t immediately clear how far inside the building the assailant got before police shot him.

French President Emmanuel Macron has gone to Paris police headquarters, and the French prime minister, interior minister and Paris prosecutor were also on the scene.
