Cherif Chekatt, the gunman who killed multiple people Tuesday at a Christmas market in Strasbourg, France, is dead, local reports said Thursday.
A wide-scale manhunt for the suspect had been ongoing since the shooting earlier this week. Three people were killed in the attack and several others injured, police said.
The National Police of the North, in a translated tweet, thanked the public for their reports which helped "find the wanted individual."
It was posted along with an earlier tweet from law enforcement that included a photo of Chekatt.
