The Hypercacher kosher supermarket siege was an attack and hostage crisis that occurred in Porte de Vincennes (20th arrondissement of Paris) in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo shooting two days earlier, and concurrently with the Dammartin-en-Goële hostage crisis in which the two Charlie Hebdo gunmen were cornered.
Amedy Coulibaly had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, and was a close friend of Saïd Kouachi and Chérif Kouachi (whom he had met in jail in 2005), the gunmen in the Charlie Hebdo attack. Armed with a submachine gun, an assault rifle, and two Tokarev pistols, he entered and attacked the people in the kosher food supermarket. Coulibaly murdered four Jewish hostages, and held fifteen other hostages during a siege in which he demanded that the Kouachi brothers not be harmed. The police ended the siege by storming the store and killing Coulibaly.
Dude probably looked like Swiss cheese
Must be stressful... How do you even know you're shooting at the right person in the chaos?
Damn, that was chaotic. I am PRETTY sure I saw at least one friendly-fire incident.
I'd find it hard to imagine there wasn't at least one. That one guy on the right who leans in forward to fire closer to Colibaly's body bothers me. So much crossfire.
That dude has huge balls being the only one to stay in there and not back out. That deserves respect.
Yeah no kidding, I seriously wonder how the decision making went as to who was positioned where.
If he would have backed out i‘m pretty sure he would have been killed by ff
