France's presidential candidates have expressed solidarity with police forces following the shooting of three officers in Paris, leaving one dead and two gravely wounded, as the Islamic State extremist group claimed responsibility for the deadly attack.

Pierre-Henry Brandet, a spokesperson for the French Interior Ministry, refuted reports of two police officers dying in the incident.

Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said on BFM television that a man came out of a auto and opened fire on a police vehicle.

Meanwhile, as France's elite anti-terrorism took control of the crime scene and searched the shooter's vehicle for possible explosives dozens of police officers kept the curious away.

"The area is unsafe because of shooting", a police officer yelled at reporters in English.

The shooting comes three days before the first round of France's presidential elections.

France has lived under a state of emergency since 2015 and has suffered a spate of Islamist militant attacks that have killed more than 230 people in the past two years.

French police tweeted, "Police intervention underway in the area of the #ChampsElysees avoid the sector and follow the instructions of the police forces".

The shooting shut down the famed Champs-Elysees, one of Paris' top tourist attractions and home to the iconic Arc de Triomphe monument.

Paris resident Daoud Kal, 29, said he was walking in the area near a metro station when he heard four to five shots.

CNN's Paris bureau is witnessing a large police operation in the area.

Paris police spokeswoman Johanna Primevert told The Associated Press that the attacker appeared to be acting alone.

An interior ministry spokesman said it was too early to say what the motive was for the attack.

He calls the attack a "terrible thing" and says "it never ends".

Earlier this week, two men were arrested in Marseille whom police said had been planning an attack ahead of the election.

In Washington, President Donald Trump said it "looks like another terrorist attack".

French presidential election candidates Marine Le Pen and Francois Fillon cancelled their campaign events scheduled for Friday in what would have been the last day of campaigning for candidates before the first round of voting in the presidential elections on Sunday.

None of the candidates immediately commented.
