Police fire tear gas to quell protesters at deadly capture website in Paris

French police fired tear gas on Friday amid clashes with agitated protesters outside a Kurdish network center in the heart of Paris

where a gunman previously killed three people and wounded four others in an attack with possible racist overtones. 

The three humans killed in and near the Ahmet-Kaya Kurdish cultural center on Rue d'Enghien were Kurdish

The alleged attacker, a 69-year-old Frenchman with an extended thief card, has been arrested.

He was no longer part of any police-supervised far-right organization, French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin told reporters

at the scene. "He (the suspect) clearly wanted to take it out on foreigners," Darmanin said.

Clashes with dozens of protesters, mostly from the Kurdish diaspora, broke out at some

point during Darmanin's visit to the online website of the attack on Friday.
