Two police officers have been held for questioning in the French capital Paris after shooting dead a man they said was threatening them, a source familiar with the case told AFP Monday.
The as-yet unidentified man allegedly first threatened a dog with a pistol just after 8:00 pm (1900 GMT) Sunday near the busy Place de la Republique square in central Paris, another source said.
He then allegedly pointed the weapon at the officers when they approached him and they opened fire in response, hitting him four times.

A police source said the man “doesn’t appear to have addressed any particular words to the police but was indeed threatening”.
Paris prosecutors said they had opened two separate investigations.
One will target the dead man for attempted murder of a public official and another will probe the police officers for violence resulting in unintentional death.
