French Suspect Shot in Head

France’s so-called Scooter Killer was shot in the head by French police after a 32-hour standoff that ended on Thursday. Mohamed Merah, 23, was suspected of killing seven people in multiple attacks. A prosecutor also confirmed rumors that Merah filmed the three attacks. A self-described Islamic militant, Merah had wounded three police officers in an earlier raid on Wednesday, and either fell out of a window or leapt as he was being shot. Authorities said Merah was “dead as he hit the ground.” An autopsy will be performed later Thursday afternoon.
