Jean-Baptiste Salvaing and Jessica Schneider were killed by Larossi Abballa while streaming live on Facebook.

Police say Larossi Aballa first killed the male officer, Jean-Baptiste Salvain. He then took his wife, Jessica Schneider, and three-year-old son hostage in their own home.

He later stabbed Schneider to death.

In the video, Aballa says he was following the order from a senior ISIS leader. It should be noted that ISIS allegedly ordered attacks on the U.S. and Europe during Ramadan, which ends July 5.

Finally, a French SWAT team rescued the boy and killed the shooter.

They later found a hit list, inside Aballa's home, containing the names of police officers, journalists, rappers and other public figures.

The president of France, Francois Hollande, believes this is no doubt an act of terrorism.

Two others connected to Aballa have been detained. After this attack and other deadly attacks in Paris, the "City of Light" has had a season of dark days.
