Earlier: After a series of horrific explosions and shootings in Paris on Friday Nov. 13, at least 140 people have died, according to numerous reports. President Francois Hollande has declared a state of emergency and closed the country's borders.
Paris police told CNN there were three attacks throughout the night. Officials believe all attacks were coordinated. While more details are still rolling in, here's what we do know about the devastating violence at the soccer stadium, a popular restaurant, and a music theater.
The first of the attacks was a shooting at restaurant Le Petit Cambodge in the 11th district near the Place de la Republique in Paris. It's still unclear how many people were killed at this particular location, but police initially said there were 11 deaths.
There was another attack at Bataclan, a music theater located in Paris' 11th district where American band Eagles of Death Metal was scheduled to perform. After a hostage-taking, the police raided the music hall, confirming that the attackers killed at least 100 people. Two of the gunmen are dead. One witness told The Telegraph that "three men with Kalashnikovs and wearing flak jackets burst in in the middle of the concert" and "started spraying bullets." The gunmen also threw explosives at hostages, reported The Guardian.
Three explosions near the Paris' Stade de France erupted where 80,000 spectators were watching a soccer match between France versus Germany. President Francois Hollande was in attendance but was evacuated after the attacks. The explosions are now said to have been suicide bombers.
