Slain Paris officer was on duty for 2015 attack
The policeman killed on Paris' most famous boulevard has been identified as Xavier Jugele by Flag!, a French association of LGBT police officers. The group's president, Mickael Bucheron, told The Associated Press the slain officer would have celebrated his 38th birthday at the beginning of May.

 

Jugele was among the officers who responded to the gun and bomb attack on Paris' Bataclan concert hall in November 2015, part of a wave of assaults in the French capital that killed 130 people, he told People.com when the venue reopened a year later with a concert by Sting.
