BFMTV editor-in-chief Philippe Antoine came face-to-face with the attacker during the incident at the station and said he had appeared calm and determined.
The man looked at him with “a lot of intensity and determination,” Antoine said. “This was someone who was very precise in his movements, not panicked at all, someone who was in control.”
Valls said that everything possible would be done to apprehend the shooter.
“This individual is on the run and he represents a real danger. We will do everything we can to arrest him,” he said.
