PARIS (Reuters) – The Paris prosecutor’s office said on Sunday that a fifth person had died from their wounds following Tuesday’s Strasbourg Christmas market shooting.

An official with the prosecutor’s office said the victim was a Polish national and gave no other details.

The gunman, Cherif Chekatt, was killed on Thursday night after firing on police, ending a two-day manhunt that involved more than 700 members of the security forces.
