He was killed in Strasbourgs’ Neudorf/Meinau district, he was initially thought to have escaped to neighbouring Germany.
He’s seen lying slumped in a doorway with a revolver.
Chekatt, 29 was killed after firing on brave terror cops who returned fire, sources said.
Reporters near the scene heard three to four gunshots after a huge police operation with armed forces from the BRI and RAID units. A police helicopter had been circling overhead.
The death toll from Tuesday’s attack rose to three as police on Thursday combed the city in the east of France for a second day and manned checkpoints on the German border.
Police issued a wanted poster in multiple languages for Chekatt, who was wanted DEAD or ALIVE.
Authorities say the 29-year-old was known to security services and was said to have developed radical religious views while in jail.
