Video footage has emerged from a terrifying gun assault on a pizza restaurant during the night of the Paris terror attacks.
Three CCTV cameras captured staff and diners ducking for cover as a militant opened fire and the remarkable moment his gun jammed as he pointed his weapon at the head of an intended victim.
The woman managed to escape on a night when 129 people were killed in the coordinated attacks by Islamist militants across the France capital.
The Daily Mail, which obtained the footage, said around 30 bullets were fired during the attack on the pizza restaurant, which began shortly after 10.30pm local time last Friday.
The assault on the restaurant, which is reportedly in Paris’s 11th district, lasted less than a minute before the gunman fled in a car.
It was unclear if he was being supported by an accomplice or was acting alone on the night of coordinated attacks.
While no one inside the pizzeria died, the Mail reported a man who had arrived to collect a pizza was shot in the back and died in the street.
He was among five people to be killed in attacks in the vicinity of the restaurant, according to the newspaper.
Two diners who suffered minor bullet wounds were reportedly among 10 to be injured in the attack.
The CCTV footage shows a 20-year-old waitress wrapping herself around an injured older woman as the room full of table and chairs comes under fire.
Staff seen initially hiding behind the counter quickly fled for the basement or building’s upper floors as diners outside flee the scene.
The gunman can later be seen pointing his weapon at point-blank range at one of two people hiding under an outside table before the gun miraculously jams and he leaves in the approaching vehicle.
The Daily Mail claimed police are examining the video as part of their investigation into last Friday’s deadly attacks.
