Heavy gunfire has been heard in a residential area to the northeast of Paris, but it is unclear whether the situation is connected to last week’s deadly terror attacks in the French capital. (more)

Sources close to the investigation told iTele that gunfire was being exchanged in Seine-Saint-Denis, north of Paris, in connection with “the tracking down of fugitives.” It did not specify whether it was referring to the Paris attacks.

Multiple videos posted to social media on early Wednesday morning included sounds of heavy gunfire. One resident in the region said the area was quiet again by 5 a.m. local time, but heavy gunfire resumed a short time later.

Roads in the area have been blocked by police, CNN reported.

Other details about the situation have not yet been released.

If it is related to the attack, the only justice the terrorists need is a well placed bullet between the eyes. Why waste time and money on a trial? Plus it's unlikely he'd let himself be apprehended. These cowards always off themselves before getting caught.

Live updates here ^^

Here’s a quick run-down of what we know about current events in St Denis, where it is currently 5.50am:

“Heavy gunfire” has been reported in St Denis, a northern Paris suburb. St Denis is where the Stade de France, one of the targets of Friday’s attacks, is located.
Shooting took place during a police operation reported to be linked to the search for the so-called “ninth attacker” – believed to be on the run.
Some local media reports that a number of police officers have been injured in the operation; this has not been confirmed.
Roads have been closed off and the police operation appears to be ongoing, with large numbers of police officers and police vehicles in the area.

It's heart-wrenching and nerve-wracking. There are innocent people in that immediate vicinity also, just trying to move forward and cope with the events of Friday. They are likely already traumatized and now this in their neighborhoods. But of course they want the conspirators apprehended....

seems a bunch of stuff was exploding 4 seperate ones were heard on the live stream from op(according to update feed) so hopefully they were flashbangs and this is getting resolved vs more bombs

from ops link

It is now just after 7.30am in Paris, meaning the siege in St-Denis has been going on for over three hours. There are reports of one person dead, and three police officers injured, though apparently not seriously. Several explosions have been heard in the last few minutes. At least three military trucks are now on the scene in the centre of St-Denis.

A female terrorist wearing a suicide vest has blown herself up and another jihadi is dead as more than 100 police and soldiers were today involved in a gunfight with up to six suspected Paris terrorists including the mastermind behind Friday's massacres. SWAT teams and special forces have surrounded an apartment in the Parisian suburb of Saint-Denis - close to the Stade de France - in a siege that started at 4.30am this morning. French media are reporting the architect of the plan that killed 129 people, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, is alive and inside the flat - until now it was thought he was in Syria orchestrating the Paris attacks from ISIS capital Raqqa.

A woman who may be Abaaoud's jihadi bride is said to have fired her AK-47 at police before blowing herself up as an assault squad stormed the apartment block. Survivors of the Bataclan massacre where 89 people died insisted there was a female shooter. As she tried to kill police this morning a rooftop sniper shot dead another terror suspect through a window.

Police have confirmed that three people in the apartment were taken alive and arrested while two others were held 'nearby' with security forces still trying to 'neutralise' more holed-up in the flat. An innocent person on the street may have been killed in the crossfire and at least four police are believed to have been injured in the ferocious gunfight.

They were possibly all in this flat or maybe a couple are still on the run. It will probably take police a while to figure out who they have captured or killed.

Despite conflicting reports, the general consensus (right now) is three people dead and five arrested.

Because maybe they have information on other, imminent attacks and that information cam be extracted from them during the interrogation process. So much ignorance flying around just now...

BBC is reporting this group were going to carry out an attack in the buisness area of paris.

Also reports that Abdelhamid Abaaoud the matermind of the paris attack was in this flat.

Officially there are 2 dead and a dog. There has just been more gunfire. There are also people in white suits, they look like hazmat suits but I am no expert.

It's a mess at the moment, it keeps on going. I wonder what lead those terrorists to pass up the attacks, maybe because they are trowing out every radical imams and Islamic fanatics that they know could form a threat?
