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

“The person had been fighting for their life,” an official in the prosecutor’s office said.

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.
