Videos depicting the immediate aftermath of the suspected terrorist attack in central Paris have appeared on social media, showing frightened eyewitnesses taking cover and running for their lives in the first moments following the shooting.

One of the earliest videos to emerge appears to have been filmed just opposite of the spot where shooting took place, in front of Marks & Spencer store on Champs Elysees. A parked car can be seen near the police van, from which the attacker reportedly came out before going on a shooting spree.

Armed figures can be seen moving and one of them appears to fall down, but it is unclear who the pictured persons are. The video has been making rounds on social media, but the source of the footage was not immediately known.
