PARIS — The gunman behind a shootout that killed a police officer and wounded two others in central Paris was French and had a long criminal record, an Interior Ministry spokesman said Friday. Pierre Henry Brandet also told radio station France Info that officials found a shotgun and knives in the suspect's car. The gunman ambushed three Parisian police officers on the Champs-Elysees on Thursday, killing one and wounding two others in what the country's president called a terrorist attack. Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve also confirmed Friday that pre-existing arrangements that 50,000 police and 7,000 military personnel would be deployed for security during this weekend's elections.
