Paris shooting: French policeman killed on Champs Élysées
Police say two other officers wounded and attacker shot dead in incident described by François Hollande as ‘terrorist in nature’
One policeman has been killed and two wounded in a shooting incident in central Paris, days before the first round of the French presidential election.
Pierre-Henry Brandet, of the French interior ministry, said the attacker opened fire on a police van on the Champs Élysées on Thursday night, killing one officer and seriously wounding two others. He said later that the wounded police officers’ lives were no longer in danger.
