Eye witnesses told of a man who exited his vehicle holding a Kalashnikov and fired at a police officer. They had no other details about him.

French President Francois Hollande said he believes the incident is likely a terrorist attack. "He shot straight at the police officer".

France's interior ministry said the gunman was killed after opening fire on the officers at around 9:00 pm (1900 GMT) on the boulevard.

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

"We are suffering the consequences of a laxity that has continued for years", she said shortly before the shooting, promising to take a hard line against extremists and anyone suspected of being an Islamist.

The IS group claimed responsibility for the fatal shooting in a statement by the jihadists' propaganda agency Amaq. He said officers were "deliberately" targeted. "Some were crying. There were tens, maybe even hundreds of them".

She entered politics by joining her father's party at 18. "The FN top brass has chose to go full throttle for far-right voters". But that threat is precisely why Europe must address seriously the possibility of her winning, however unlikely it may seem.

It was unclear how Trump concluded that terrorism may have been a factor.

He calls the attack a "terrible thing" and says "it never ends". "We have to be strong and we have to be vigilant, and I have been saying it for a long time".

The attack came three days before the first round of balloting in France's presidential election.

Paris police are warning people to avoid the area around the French capital's grand Champs-Elysees. Authorities are telling people to avoid the area.

UPDATE (3:53 p.m. ET): One attacker shot a police officer as he sat in his cruiser at a red light, Fox News is reporting.

The attacker, who was reportedly in a auto, opened fire on a police vehicle at a red light, killing an officer inside.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz is not running for re-election
Spencer Cox told the WSJ that officials are preparing for a special election in Chaffetz's 3rd Congressional District. Chaffetz ended his Facebook post supporting Evans' claim that he believes the third district will remain Republican.

One officer was killed and another was wounded.

Brandet says it's too early to say whether the attacker might have had an accomplice, and said authorities are studying multiple potential motives. Although CNN reports that a third person was also struck in the gunfire, it's not yet clear whether this person was a bystander or the attacking gunman.

And in March, a 39-year-old man was killed at Paris's Orly airport after attacking a soldier.

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. The shooting started during the last TV show with all 11 presidential candidates before the first round of the election on Sunday.

None of the candidates immediately commented.
