The incident comes just two days after a 22-year-old man went on a stabbing spree in the Paris suburb of Villejuif killing a man and injuring two women.

French police have shot a man in the thigh in the city of Metz in France's northeast after he threatened passers-by with a kitchen knife and shouted "Allahu Akbar". The police were forced to open fire after he threatened the officers, AFP reported citing police sources.

​The man, whose life isn't in danger, was later arrested. There were no other casualties in the incident.

​According to Metz public prosecutor Christian Mercuri, the man has been on the police radar due to his 'radicalisation and personality disorder'. Mercuri said he was in touch with terrorism prosecutors to determine whether the act should be treated as terror-related.
