"I hope it's nothing serious."

President Hollande of France after a shot rang out while he was making a speech!

If that had been Washington they'd still have been in lockdown.

*As the policeman was on a roof I can't see that he was in imminent danger *

He could have shot himself in the foot.

This report states the policeman discharged his weapon whilst changing position. Once he decided to move he should have made the gun safe till he assumed a safe position.

He was on protection duties so his own safety was not a factor, except insofar as it did not count.

As long as the protected figure is in public view the threat is real and imminent.
