A lone attacker injured a police officer Tuesday afternoon in Paris after running through the Notre Dame Cathedral with a hammer.

He reportedly ran up to the officer and stuck him in the head. The man was shot twice in the chest by the same officer and has been taken to a hospital. No civilians were injured. ┬áThe Interior Ministry has considered this a terrorist attack. They also added that the attacker stated “it is for Syria.” The Cathedral┬áhas also been put under lock down, though it appears the situation has ended.

This event occurred just two days after a London attack left 7 people dead and numerous injured when three assailants ran over people on the London bridge and then stabbed others with knives.

France has been in a state of emergency since November 2015.
