The motive is unclear at this point, and we’re not saying that sarcastically:
JUST IN: Four people have been killed in the stabbing at the Paris police headquarters, according to CNN affiliate BFM TV.
The motive of the attacker, who was a longtime administrative employee for the police, is still unknown. https://t.co/hVZgd7B5qk
