“We stand with our friends and partners in France,” Spokesperson for the German Foreign Ministry Martin Schafer said on behalf of the German government from Berlin, Friday, speaking in reaction to Thursday’s shooting in Paris that left one police officer dead.

Talking to journalists during a federal press conference, Schafer condemned the attack, which he said “certainly qualifies as a terrorist attack.” He added the Germany’s thoughts were with “the victims, their families and friends.”

One police officer was killed and two others injured during a deadly shooting at the Champs-Elysees in central Paris on Thursday evening. The assailant was shot and killed by police while reportedly attempting to run away. Overnight, armed police raided property at the town of Chelles, reported to be the family house of the main suspect, identified as Karim Cheurfi, a 39-year-old with a previous police record.
