The stabbing occurred on Palais Garnier and Opera not far from a busy metro station.

One guy went down right in front of our hotel. Watched people running (not sure if from or after somebody). Heard shots shortly after #Paris #opera Rue Marsollier pic.twitter.com/qv9UfD4TAt

France 24 journalist Charles Pellegrin, very near the scene, spoke to eye witnesses.

“I came out of a comedy show near Opera in central Paris and was immediately told to go back in because there was a madman with a knife. Once back inside we heard sirens and 2 gun shots. I then spoke to eyewitnesses who told me a man stabbed multiple people at random.

“The eyewitnesses then told me police tried to tazer (sic) the attacker. This did not work, so they fired two shots. Police have now set up a perimeter and say the situation is under control. Ambulances are rushing to the scene.”
