An Islamic State supporter who murdered a French police officer in the greater Paris area live streamed his heinous attack.

According to SKY News, the killer – 25-year-old Larossi Abballa-  repeatedly stabbed 42-year-old senior policeman Jean-Baptiste Salvaing outside of his home, as well as his domestic partner, who was also employed by the police. Their three-year-old son was unharmed, though reportedly in shock.

French officials report that the attacker posted a 12-minute live stream video on his Facebook account, which has since been suspended.

One official said that the killer was puzzled with what to do with the child.

“I don’t know what to do with him,” Abballa said in the video, speaking about the child sitting behind him on a couch.

Abballa had a “hit list” of VIPs, police and entertainers. He was also previously placed under surveillance by French police, but was later dismissed. He was also jailed in 2013 for three years, though he did not serve the full sentence.

“France is not the only country concerned as we have seen in the past days in the United States in Orlando, but we also saw it in Europe and in some other countries in the world, France is facing a terror threat of a very large scale,” said French president Francois Hollande.

Witnesses to what the French president calls an “incontestably terrorist act” say the killed shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he launched the attack. Explosions were heard as the elite French RAID police unit breached the site after negotiations failed.

Still, French police are aware of the hazards they face in the age of Islamic terror.

“Today every police officer is a target,” said police union chief Yves Lefebvre, adding that attackers are targeting the police in their homes.

French Minister of Interior Bernard Cazeneuve called the murder of Salvaing was “an appalling terrorist attack.”

The threat “is high in France, it’s high in Europe, it’s high in the Western world as shown by the events that happened 48 hours ago in the United States,” Cazeneuve said.

More than 100 people who are potential threats have been detained in recent weeks.
