This video captures the terrifying shoot-out between French police officers and machine gun-wielding gunmen outside the Paris concert hall where more than 80 people were slaughtered. 

The footage, taken by photographer Patrick Zachmann, shows armed officers engaging in a gunfight with terrorists, who are not seen on camera, around the corner from the Bataclan theatre.
