Late in the second hour of today's live show, we got a call from our friend the Colonel, who shared with us the breaking story of multiple terror attacks on Paris, France.
Now two hours later, the picture is coming into clearer focus, and the coordinated attacks have killed at last report more than 140 people, with scores more injured or missing,
The first report we heard indicated there was at least one explosion at a stadium where a soccer match was being played between France and Germany. Reports were that dozens were thought dead at the stadium.
Next reports of a mass-shooting at a restaurant in Paris, with scores more reported dead and/or injured.
Next reports of a mass-shooting at a Paris concert hall, where 100 or more were killed, and many more taken hostage inside the theater.
Latest reports indicate at least 6 shootings took place in Paris, and three explosions took place at Stade de France in Saint-Denis.
Two or three gunmen entered the Bataclan concert hall while opening fire on law enforcement. Reports indicate multiple hostage-takers according to a source inside the concert hall. Perliminary reprts indicate the gunmen were wielding AK-47 automatic weapons.
From CNN.com comes this report:
Counterterrorism officials around the United States have convened secure conference calls to try to gather information and to assess whether there is any indication of threats in the U.S, according to two U.S. counterterrorism officials. Immediate suspicion for the events in Paris falls to so-called returnees -- people who have traveled to Syria and Iraq and have returned, the officials said.
Parisiens are still gun-shy after the January attacks on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, attacks that claimed 12 lives and wounded 11 more.
