A police officer was killed and another wounded in a wild shooting on Paris’ busiest street, according to local news reports.

The shooter was also killed, a police source told Reuters.

The gunman opened fire on the Champs-Elysees just after 9 p.m., according to the Express.

Cops are warning people to stay away from the area, and the Paris Metro station near the famed thoroughfare has been closed, the paper reports.

The shooting comes just days before the country’s presidential elections.

Paris Shootout Leaves Police Officer and Gunman Dead

APRIL 20, 2017

PARIS — A gunman jumped out of a car, killed a police officer and wounded two others on the Champs-Élysées in central Paris on Thursday night, French officials said.

The gunman was shot dead by the police as he tried to flee on foot, Pierre-Henry Brandet, a French Interior Ministry spokesman, told the BFMTV news channel.

Mr. Brandet said that shortly before 9 p.m a car pulled up to a police vehicle that was parked on the famous boulevard.

The man opened fire on the police vehicle, killing an officer. He then “tried to leave by running away while aiming at, and trying to target, other police officers,” Mr. Brandet said.

“He managed to wound two others and was shot dead by the police forces,” Mr. Brandet added. It was not immediately known if anyone else was in the attacker’s car.

Mr. Brandet said that the exact sequence of events was still unclear, as was whether the assailant had acted alone.

“It is much too early to say what the motivations were but in any case police officers who were deliberately targeted this evening on the Champs-Élysées,” he added.


The Paris prosecutor’s office said on Thursday evening that it had opened a terrorism investigation.

Paris attack: 1 police officer killed, 2 seriously injured in shooting on Champs-Élysées‬‬; ISIS claims responsibility
Published April 20, 2017

DEVELOPING: A police officer was killed and two others were seriously injured when a gunman opened fire late Thursday on the famed Champs-Élysées in Paris before he was shot dead, officials said. The Islamic State group quickly claimed responsibility for the attack.

Paris police spokeswoman Johanna Primevert told The Associated Press the attacker, who is believed to have acted alone, targeted police guarding the area near the Franklin Roosevelt subway station at the center of the avenue popular with tourists.

French prosecutors have opened a terrorism investigation into the attack on the officers, which took place at 9 p.m. local time.

French President Francois Hollande said he is convinced the circumstances of the Paris shooting points to a terrorist act.
