Now the president of France is saying the same thing.
According to the Associated Press, French President Francois Hollande says all the evidence points to terrorism.
ISIS itself has claimed the gunman as their own, although there has been no evidence released yet to confirm that. The assailant’s identity has not been revealed either.
An anti-terror investigation is in the works.
France has been the site of numerous Islamic terrorist attacks in recent years, including the Bastille Day attack that killed 86 people in Nice last year and the November 2015 Paris attacks on multiple venues that killed 130.
