Boucek said she'd still be surprised if Le Pen became president, even if she does get more votes than expected before Thursday's attack. Two other police officers and a woman, who was passing by, were injured, according to Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins.

Coming days before France votes in the first round of its presidential election Sunday, the shooting puts national security, terrorism and immigration at the heart of an already divisive campaign.

So close to the presidential election, "the country's on edge", Eleanor says, adding that thousands of police officers are on the streets.

"We have a great determination to battle terrorism here and everywhere our forces are engaged", the head of state said in a televised address.

France has been under a state of emergency since 2015, because of a series of deadly terrorist attacks over the past several years.

"We therefore informed our French colleagues that this man was of interest to us in connection with the drugs case", he said.

The French Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve accused Le Pen of trying to capitalize on the attack. Paris' iconic Champs-Elysees boulevard is reopen and picking up its usual early morning routine Friday after a gunman opened fire on police, killing one officer and wounding three people before police shot and killed him.

Hollande is meeting with his top defense and security leaders on Friday.

The gunman in the latest attack targeted police guarding the area near the Franklin D Roosevelt metro stop on the Champs Elysees on Thursday night (local time), at the centre of the avenue, which is popular with tourists. While in custody, he shot and injured a prison officer after grabbing his gun.

A prosecutor in Antwerp said: "That man came to police after he saw himself appear on social media as terror suspect No. 1 relating to yesterday's facts".

US President Donald Trump tweeted that the shooting would "have a big effect" on the election. "What can you say?"

German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed her condolences to Hollande and said her sympathy "goes out to the victims and their families", according to her spokesman Steffen Seibert.

The extremist group named the attacker as Abu Yusuf al Beljiki and suggested he was a Belgian.

The incident follows two recent attacks on soldiers providing security at prominent locations around Paris - one at the Louvre museum in February and one at Orly airport in March. Parliament voted in December to extend the extraordinary provisions to ensure the protection of upcoming presidential and general elections.
