The most important news first: don’t worry, everybody is alright!
During a broadcast for Canal Plus, who were just doing interviews on stage with Mr. Waltz and Daniel Auteuil for Le Grand Journal, panic broke off as a man with a suspicious device was spotted. Witnesses reportedly saw a gun and blanks were fired.
The show was interrupted until the man was taken away by police officers.
If there is a connection to the jewel heist which happened earlier today, is so far not yet known.
According to security, nobody was hurt during the incident.
The story is covered by The Hollywood Reporter who also have a video of the incident on their homepage.
UPDATE: Later that day, Mr. Waltz told the Daily Mail that the incident had left him “shaken” and that he feared for his life for a few desperate moments. But do not worry, he also said that he is alright. Luckily, the man only fired blanks and lucky again, he threatened to throw a grenade but had none. According to a police source, the man is believed to be in a mentally instable condition. You can read the story here: Daily Mail.
While there has been no immediate danger, it surely was a scary moment for everybody involved. We can only hope that the possibly crazy man is getting the help he needs.
