PARIS (AP) -The French Interior Ministry says investigators believe that no other people were involved in an attack at a police station in which the assailant was killed by police.

A Ministry spokesman told The Associated Press that at this stage of the investigation, police believe only one person was involved and are not looking for other suspects.

Police shot and killed the attacker, wearing what turned out to be a fake explosives belt, after he threatened them with a knife.

The neighborhood was cordoned off by police after the attack. One resident who was unable to get home said, "It's like the Charlie Hebdo affair isn't over" -- referring to the attack on the satirical newspaper exactly a year ago today.
