Police sources say the officers were attacked on the Champs-Elysee 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.

French media are reporting two shots were fired in the incident 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.
