Paris police are warning people to avoid the area around the French capital's grand Champs-Elysees after reports that two police officers were shot Thursday, with one dying.

A prosecutor said his identity had been been verified and police said at least one location in the eastern Paris suburbs was being searched.

It was not immediately clear what motivated the attack. He says counterterrorism authorities are investigating.

The Thursday evening attack took place in the city's Champs-Elysees district, which is hugely popular with tourists and shoppers.

"I was in a panic, and I ran too", he said.

On Feb. 3, a man with a knife attacked a group of soldiers guarding the Louvre in Paris.

President Donald Trump, speaking at a news conference in Washington with the visiting Italian Prime Minister, offered condolences to the people of France after the shooting in Paris, saying it "looks like another terrorist attack".

PARIS French President Francois Hollande said all the indications were that Thursday's attack on police officers in Paris was terrorist-related and he said security forces would be vigilant during the forthcoming presidential election. Several police cars and helicopters have been dispatched to the scene.

A witness identified only as Ines told French television station BFM that she heard a shooting and saw a man's body on the ground before police quickly evacuated the area where she works in a shop.

The gunman was later shot dead by police.

Meanwhile, French Ministry of Interior Spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet told BFMTV that the assailant "got out of the vehicle and shot at the police vehicle with an automatic weapon, killing one policeman instantly".

But the shooting could have been an attempt at an armed robbery, according to police sources.

A machine gun, two hand-guns and three kilograms of TATP explosives were found in the apartment, along with an Islamic State flag.
