A French police officer who shot a Paris Saint-Germain fan to death while trying to protect a supporter of an Israeli club has been released from custody.
The plainclothes officer, Antoine Granomort, told investigators Saturday that he used his weapon because he considered himself in danger, the prosecutor's office said. Granomort was freed Saturday night, though an investigation continues.
Granomort killed one man and wounded another while under attack from a group of PSG supporters following Thursday's UEFA Cup match between PSG and Hapoel Tel Aviv.
