Trump says shooting in Paris looks like 'terrorist attack'

One policeman was killed and another wounded in a shooting incident in central Paris on Thursday night, a police source said.

The shooting happened about 9 p.m. local time (3 p.m. ET) when a vehicle stopped at 102 Champs-Elysees in front of a police van, Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre Henry Brandet said.

The news agency also says police believe two attackers were involved and one was killed.

Brandet said the attacker used an automatic weapon, and aimed at a parked police van before he was killed by the other police officers at the scene.

The shooting comes three days before French general elections and Paris was already in a state of heightened alert.

"Once again, the police family is in mourning and it serves to underline how fearless officers are putting their life on the line day in and day out to protect the public", he said.

Although an anti-terror probe has been opened, other reports said the shooting could have been an attempt at an armed robbery.

Brandet says the police officers were "deliberately" targeted.

UPDATE (4:09 p.m.): President Trump offered his condolences for the people of France during a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.

Paris police warn people to avoid the Champs Elysees area after French media reports two police officers have been shot.

The leader of the far-right National Front party, Marine Le Pen, has campaigned heavily on an anti-immigrant platform and what she has couched as the need to defend France from "Islamist globalization".

A witness tells Reuters that one man got out of a vehicle at the scene and began shooting with a machine gun.

In February, a man armed with a machete in each hand attacked soldiers on patrol at Paris's Louvre Museum.

A first round of voting is scheduled to be held on Sunday in the election followed by a runoff vote on May 7 between the two leading candidates.

President Francois Hollande has said he is convinced the attack was terror-related.

A witness identified only as Ines told French TV station BFM that she heard a shooting and saw a body on the ground. At the time of the shooting, all 11 presidential candidates were appearing on television.

France remains under a state of emergency, after a series of deadly terrorist attacks over the past several years. None of the candidates immediately commented.
