Police operatives in Paris have reportedly opened fire leading to the death of two people as anti-Emmanuel Macron protesters take to the capital’s streets following the second round of the 2022 French Presidential Election. Protests have erupted across France following the result of the 2022 Presidential Election. Emmanuel Macron will return to the Elysée Palace for another five years after winning his second consecutive contest against National Rally’s Marine Le Pen.

Mr Macron is projected to have won the 2022 contest by a tighter margin than in 2017. The French President is set to receive 58.8 per cent of the vote compared to 41.2 per cent for the far-right candidate, according to IPSOS. However, opponents of Mr Macron have voiced their disappointment with the result by protesting.

It had been reported riot police had come into contact with protesters and used tear gas. The gunshots are believed to have been fired by a police-issue Heckler & Koch G36 assault rifle. He added: ‘According to witnesses on the spot, a man forced a police barrage, which responded by firing automatic weapons.

‘Several victims on the ground are taken care of by the emergency services.’ In a separate tweet, he said: ‘The police confirm a refusal to comply. Two people died.’

However, there is no information at this stage on the identity of the driver or the reasons which led him to rush towards the police. Agence France-Presse also confirmed two people were killed during an incident in the French capital.

They said: ‘Police officers fired this evening in Paris on a vehicle which tried to hit them, killing two occupants of the vehicle and injuring a third, learned the AFP from a police source.’

An investigating source has since said: ‘A car came rushing towards police soon after midnight, and refused to stop. ‘One of the police officers opened fire, killing two people and wounding a third.’


An examining magistrate arrived at the scene in the early hours of Monday morning. The scene was closed to traffic and the IGNP investigations unit was also present. An investigation into ‘attempted voluntary manslaughter on persons in charge of public authority’ has reportedly been launched. Police confirmed the wounded person was a woman who had been sat in the back of the vehicle. Source Source 2


‘France’s tragedy begins!’ Frexit leader slams Macron after two people shot dead in Paris

‘France’s tragedy begins!’ Frexit leader slams Macron after two people shot dead in Paris 

Francois Asselineau, a former councillor in Paris, has torn into Emmanuel Macron after it was reported two people had been shot dead at the Pont Neuf, which is in the square du Vert-Galant.

Mr Macron’s second term as French President took a turn for the worse after the incident occurred just hours after he celebrated his second consecutive victory at the feet of the Eiffel Tower.

Mr Asselineau, who received over 330,000 votes in the first round of the 2017 French Presidential Election, said in French on Twitter: “Sinister omen. Macron’s second five-year term begins with two people killed for refusing to comply.

Police officers investigate the site where two people (L and R) were shot by police in Paris on April 25, 2022. Shortly after midnight on Sunday night, police opened fire on a car that refused to stop at a police checkpoint on the Pont Neuf in Paris. Police told AFP the car was driving against traffic and sped towards officers, who were forced to open fire, according to the same police source. (Photo by Ludovic MARIN / AFP)

“It was predictable: the re-election of Macron opens the way to omnipotence and gives wings to the prefect of police to shoot in the crowd.


Mr Macron will return to the Elysee Palace for another five years after winning his second consecutive contest against the Eurosceptic and far-right leader of National Rally Marine Le Pen.

The French President is set to receive 58.8 percent of the vote compared to 41.2 percent for the far-right candidate, according to IPSOS.

Mr Asselineau was considered a potential candidate in the first round.

However, the Frexit leader was forced to withdraw from the contest after he failed to receive the 500 signatures needed to enter the ballot.
