Video: Police Gunfight with Nice, France Terrorist

A new amateur video was just released which shows French police officers stopping the terrorist attack in Nice, France, and police officers can be seen firing at the truck that was driven by the terrorist, Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, NBC said.

NBC News reported in part:

The scene opens with a burst of gunfire while the the white truck is motionless, two cops seen firing in the frame.

The chilling new video emerged Friday of the moment French police stopped a truck driver’s murderous path down the promenade in Nice. Dozens of people were killed in Thursday night’s attack.

The video emerged showing what appears to be the immediate aftermath, with the large white truck stopped in the street as pops of gunfire are heard. Two police officers are seen in the initial frame, guns raised.

More officers race toward the vehicle, surrounding the cab and shining their flashlights inside. Screams and shouts are heard as yet more police swarm from around the back of the truck.

The camera pans to the left to show the deadly trail of destruction with debris and what appear to be bodies strewn in the street, people running through the frame.

One day after the massacre, Fox News is reporting that vehicles and trucks were forbidden from the Promenade des Anglais during Thursday’s Bastille Day festivities. But the terrorist, Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, who plowed the 19-ton truck into a mile-long crowd of revelers, killing at least 84, including two Americans, a father and young son, reportedly got past police by telling them he had ice cream to hand out.

Fox News also reported that there was no immediate claim of responsibility, but two sources, including a U.S. counter-terrorism source who collects and monitors jihadist social media, told Fox News that accounts linked to ISIS were “celebratory” and their followers were told to use the hashtag “Nice.”
