The police officer, who was not identified, was trying to protect a Hapoel Tel Aviv fan set upon by some 150 PSG supporters, police said. The officer lobbed tear gas when the crowd went after the Hapoel supporter then fired two shots, "having been driven into a corner," police said. Two people were injured, with one dying later, police said. The victims were not identified.
