    An ISIS fanatic has been shot dead by police in France after he killed three people in a gun rampage and supermarket hostage siege.

    The lone extremist, armed with a gun, knives and a grenade, hijacked a car, shot its passenger in the head and fired at police officers in Carcassonne, south west France, before driving to a Super U shop in Trebes.

    After screaming 'Allahu Akbar, I'll kill you all', the Moroccan Islamist, named as 26-year-old Redouane Lakdim, killed a butcher and a shopper while terrified customers either fled from the store or hid in a cold room.

    During his siege, Lakdim demanded the release of Salah Abdeslam, 28, the last surviving suspect in the 2015 ISIS attack in Paris that left 130 dead.

    But after an hours-long standoff, special police units converged on the scene and stormed the supermarket. French President Emmanuel Macron this afternoon called Lakdim's rampage a 'terrorist act'.

    French investigators said the man was known to intelligence services and had been flagged in a database of radicalised militants. His home was raided today and a neighbour said she had seen Lakdim 'taking one of his younger sisters to school' before he launched his attack.

    Gunman shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ takes hostages in deadly France attack


    At least two people were killed and about a dozen others injured after a gunman claiming allegiance to ISIS opened fire and took hostages at a supermarket in southwest France on Friday, according to reports.

    The suspect asked for the release of Salah Abdelslam, the prime surviving suspect in the November 2015 attack in Paris that killed 130 people, according to BFM TV.

    The attacker — reported to be a Moroccan national who was known to authorities — killed the two people at a Super U store in the town of Trèbes, a security source told Agence France-Presse.
    Trèbes Mayor Eric Menassi told BFM that the hostage-taker was now alone with one police officer in the supermarket after freeing all the hostages.
    A dozen people were injured in the incident, officials said.
    Police also responded to an earlier shooting of a police officer in the town of Carcassonne, about a 15-minute drive away, which took place at about 11 a.m. local time.
