Photos Of Paris Grocery Store Hostage Situation Show Chilling, Panicked Scene

SWAT teams gathered outside a kosher grocery store in eastern Paris on Friday where a gunman opened fire and took several hostages.

The suspect, Amedy Coulibaly, had threatened to hurt people if police raided the building where the Kouachi brothers, both suspects in the Charlie Hebdo attack, were holed up in the town of Dammartin-en-Goele, the Associated Press reported.

Authorities eventually rushed into the store and killed Coulibaly. French President Francois Hollande said four people were killed in the incident. Coulibaly had a history of ties to violence.
