    I'm putting this here under the terrorism form as I know the articles I've come across so far do not specifically say 'terrorism,' from a live report on FOX cable news just a few minutes ago, the suspect cried "This is for Syria!" as he was attacking. He also had SEVERAL weapons in his backpack, per report.

    fyi,

    Notre Dame hammer attack investigated as terror; officer and suspect hurt

    A man with a hammer bashed a police officer in the head outside Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris Tuesday, in an attack that investigators called an act of terror.

    The wounded officer fired twice at the hammer-wielding man in the square in front of the cathedral, French police told Fox News. The attacker was hospitalized; the specific conditions of both men were unclear.

    The French interior minister said the suspect had been threatening several policemen and passersby at the time. Just before 5:30 p.m. local time, the operation was over.

    Paris has been under high security after a string of Islamic extremist attacks in recent years. In February, a man attacked soldiers outside a shopping mall near the Louvre. He was heard yelling "Allahu Akbar" before soldiers shot and injured him. Another attacker opened fire on a police van on Paris' Champs Elysees in April, killing one and seriously wounding two others. Police shot and killed the attacker in that situation.

    Paris: Police shoot man who attacked officer at Notre-Dame cathedral

    Paris (CNN)Police in Paris shot and injured a man who attacked an officer with a hammer at Notre-Dame cathedral in the center of the city.

    The attacker pulled the hammer from his backpack and attacked a police officer on duty outside the cathedral, police union spokesman Yves Lefebvre told BFM TV. He was shot in the chest by another officer.
    Video posted on social media from the scene shows what appears to be the attacker laying motionless on the ground next to a police officer.

    The Paris prosecutor's office said it had opened an anti-terror probe into the incident. Police on Twitter warned the public to stay away from the cathedral.
    Kyle Riches, a tourist from San Francisco, was with his wife walking through the plaza outside Notre-Dame when they heard gunshots and dropped to the ground.
    "My wife and I ran. We were trying to figure out what was going on," he said.
    "We saw SWAT teams coming in to clear the area and started running."
    He said that he and his wife saw police holding their guns up as they ran towards someone.
