Ninja Pundit reported:
French police shoot dead a knife-wielding man, who was shouting “Allahu Akbar”, outside a police station in Goutte d’Or, located in the 18th arrondissement of Paris.

A piece of paper with an Islamic State flag and claim for the attack written in Arabic was found on his body. The incident is noted for taking place on the anniversary of last year’s Charlie Hebdo shooting.

The suspect was  identified as Arab muslim Moroccan-born Sallah Ali, born in 1995 in Casablanca, a homeless man who had been arrested for petty theft.

Among his possessions, investigators found an ISIS flag and a note claiming responsibility. Ali was not on the radar of anti-terror forces in France. Ali was homeless at the time of his death. Police quickly dismissed any connection to terrorism and saw no sign of radicalization, despite

Ali was wearing was a fake suicide vest typical of Arab terrorists, as well as an Arabic note claiming responsibility, and the flag of ISIS, so police are treating the incident as a case of attempted murder. French government minister Christiane Taubira said that it doesn’t appear that Ali had been radicalized, and was treated as attempted murder, not terrorism.  “What is very clear from what is known of this person, [he] has no connection with violent radicaliziation.”
