PARIS — Officers fatally shot a man who was wielding a knife and yelling “Allahu akbar” as he tried to attack a police station in northern Paris on Thursday, setting off alarms as France marked the one-year anniversary of the terrorist attack on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.
The attack, a few minutes before noon, prompted the closing of schools, shops and streets. The man’s body lay on the street outside the police station, on the Rue de la Goutte d’Or. The authorities said the man, who was not identified, had lunged at an officer.
