French police officer killed by gunman in Paris ‘terror’ attack

A police officer has been killed and another wounded in what police believe was probably a terror shooting incident in Paris.
Police sources say the officers were attacked on the Champs-Elysees and the person who fired on them has also been killed.
At least two attackers are reported to be involved and authorities are warning people to avoid the area.
An eyewitness told Reuters a man got out of a car and began shooting “with a kalashnikov.”
But French media are reporting two shots were fired in the incident near the Marks and Spencer store and one of the attackers is still at large.
Many police vehicles can be seen on the famous avenue.
A witness identified only as Ines told French television station BFM that she heard a shooting, saw a man’s body on the ground and the area was quickly evacuated by police.
