French police scour streets of Strasbourg after 2 killed in shooting

Two people have been killed and 10 others wounded in a shooting in the eastern French city of Strasbourg.

This footage, taken at a cafe near Strasbourg Cathedral, shows police patrolling the streets in search of the gunman, who has reportedly been identified.

"I was sitting in the centre of Strasbourg drinking coffee, and the waiters asked everyone sitting outside to come inside," said the filmer.

"Two hours have passed and no one has been released, for the sake of our own safety. The whole time police patrol the streets."

"I understand that until a criminal is found, they will not let us out, because it is very dangerous," they added.

The shooting happened late Tuesday near a Christmas market in one of the central squares, Place Kléber.
