Paris: French police officer, gunman killed on Champs-Elysees

News Paris, France - 20 April 2017

One policeman has been shot dead and two others wounded in central Paris, French police say on April 20, 2017, with their suspected attacker killed by security forces. The Champs Elysees, where the shooting occurred, was sealed off. A car pulled up alongside a police bus just before 21:00 (19:00 GMT) and a man got out, opening fire with an automatic weapon at the bus, interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said. After killing an officer, he attempted to run away while shooting at other officers, two of whom he injured, the spokesman added. He was then shot dead by security forces. The whole of the Champs Elysees has been evacuated and police vehicles are lined up near a point half way up the avenue around the George V metro station. An anti-terrorist investigation has been launched.
