friday colonel no bill was the officer took the place of a hostage at the supermarket the twenty six year old gunman was later shot dead by police forensic teams have been seen searching his home at an apartment complex in the nearby caucus on village natasha joins us from then on i'm just wondering what the feeling is then what people are saying. i was you can imagine this is a community region in shock there's been a number of attacks in france over the past few years but of course no one ever imagines that such a thing could happen on the doorstep a young man on a shooting spree a hostage to a hostage taking and then at the end of this we've now learned that to the police officer who was already being affected as a hero for going into the supermarket in trip where this gunman had taken some hostages he went in he swapped himself for
10:06 am
a female hostage he was able to leave freely and he stayed in there he was the last one to come out of the supermarket but he was injured in in that assault as the police the french police came in and they tried to liberate the hostages an unfortunate we've heard now they're on a belt on this forty four year old french police officers now died of his wounds serve cause that is just added to the real sense of sadness here in this community a place in rural france it's a quiet place is not a big metropolitan city is just not the sort of place that people here imagines that they would see this kind of violence on their doorstep when we take a look back on the violence the events of friday. as police investigated the scene in the town of type in southwest france a clearer picture began to emerge of the man who had killed three people and wounded more than a dozen others in a shooting rampage in three locations before he was killed by police the paris
10:07 am
prosecutors said twenty six year old red one luck to him was born in morocco but lived locally and it become radicalized i met to determine. the man went to the supermarket by shouting allah akbar and stated he was a soldier i saw and ready to die for syria he was asking for their break brothers before shooting a customer a member of staff they both died instantly in two thousand and seventeen he was under surveillance but there's no signs of indicating he would carry out a terrorist attack. the attack took place in three stages first encounter the gunman carjacked a white opel car wounding the driver and killing his passenger then stealing caucus on the gunman shot and wounded one of a group of four police officers who were out jogging in the street it was only then that the gunman drove eight kilometers to the town of type where he attacked a supermarket took hostages and killed two more victims the violence has shaken
10:08 am
people across the community it was you know. i took cover because he saw me and then he followed me with a knife perhaps he had no more bullets left so i did what anyone else would do i managed to get out through an emergency exit french president emmanuel makkal had been in brussels at a european summit as news of the attack came through after returning to paris he said france continue to be under threat. for some years we have paid the price in blood in order to discover the cost of the terrorist threat our soldiers abroad are risking their lives to reduce the threat from iraq and syria our forces of law and order do everything in their power to identify threats and neutralize them. now that it's clear the red one lacked in was known to the french intelligence services and it spent time in prison many people in france will be wondering how a man with such a profile could have slipped under the radar obtained weapons and caused so much
10:09 am
carnage so natasha just confirming that the government had been under surveillance but it seemed that the police had to stop watching. that's right rather one can has indeed been under police surveillance the paris prosecutor said that the french intelligence services knew about him the paris prosecutor saying that he was being watched because he was someone who had been radicalized but then at some point in twenty seventeen is seems that they had simply decided that he wasn't the sort of person who would carry out an attack that he didn't pose a threat and that is how it seems that he slipped under the radar but you can imagine many people in france will really be wondering how this person then managed to change the weapons that he used in that attack on friday how it was that he just slipped under the radar and he was seen not to be a threat when in the end he was and i think those are some of the questions that we're really going to care over the next few days and people will really want
