Paris Police Arrest Driver Who Ran Down Soldiers              

Police in France say they have shot and arrested a man suspected of running down a group of French soldiers in a Paris suburb. French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said the "main suspect" had been arrested and France's interior ministry says the suspect was shot and injured by French police.

A BMW plowed into the soldiers yesterday morning while they were standing by a military vehicle. In the aftermath, six were hurt and two are said to be in serious condition – though no injuries are believed to be life threatening.

Officials say the soldiers were heading out on patrol in the suburb northwest of Paris, working under the state of emergency that's been in place since terrorist attacks in November of 2015. The suspect, who was not named at press time, allegedly gunned his vehicle down the quiet street, aiming right for the soldiers. The investigation continues.
