VIDEO: 3 French Terror Suspects Killed, Including 1 in Officer Shooting Death

Police stormed a kosher supermarket on the eastern edge of Paris on Friday, killing a gunman linked to the killing of a policewoman and a deadly attack on a French satirical newspaper. French President Francois Hollande said four others were also killed, reports USA Today.

Two officers and some hostages were reported injured as the hours-long standoff with Amedy Coulibaly, 32, ended amid gunshots near the supermarket Friday evening in Paris. Several hostages were seen leaving the scene, seemingly unharmed. At the same time, explosions and smoke rattled a small printing warehouse northeast of the city where the two brothers suspected in the Wednesday shooting of Charlie Hebdo, which included the shooting deaths of two police officers, were cornered by police in the day's second hostage standoff in France.

The two brothers — Cherif Kouachi, 32, and Said Kouachi, 34 — were killed in a shootout with police, and the hostage they had taken was freed, police said.

The officers killed in the attack on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo were Ahmed Merabet, 42, and Franck Brinsolaro, 49, reports the Guardian.

Earlier Friday, a police bulletin named Coulibaly and another suspect, Hayat Boumeddiene, 26, in Thursday's shooting of policewoman Clarissa Jean-Philippe, 27. Boumeddiene is believed to be the girlfriend and accomplice of Coulibaly. Boumeddiene's whereabouts and link to the supermarket remain unclear.

A senior French police official told the New York Times Coulibaly is linked to the Kouachi brothers.
