Paris gunman's criminal past in focus as police seek possible accomplicesBy Emmanuel Jarry and John Irish PARIS (Reuters) - The man who shot dead a French policeman in a suspected Islamist militant attack had served time for previous armed assaults on law enforcement officers, police sources said on Friday, as authorities sought possible accomplices. The gunman, identified as Karim Cheurfi, opened fire on a police vehicle parked on the Champs Elysees in Paris late on Thursday, killing one officer and injuring two others before being shot dead. The attack, which was claimed by Islamic State, overshadowed the last day of campaigning for Sunday's presidential election first round.
