1 Police Officer Dead, Gunman ‘Taken Down’ in Attack at Paris’ Champs-Elysees

SOURCE:latest.com

A police officer is dead after gunshots rang out in Paris near the Champs-Elysées Thursday night, according to CNN affiliate BFMTV.

Both the Telegraph and BFMTV is reporting that the gunman who opened fire on the police officer has been “taken down” in the attack, but that there may have been another attacker. There are also reports of a “suspicious package,” although this has not yet been confirmed by police.

BFMTV is also reporting another police officer was seriously injured as well as a bystander.

French police, however, have confirmed that the area of Champs Elysees is off-limits for now.

“Police intervention underway in the area of the #ChampsElysees,” the tweet read. “Avoid the sector and follow the instructions of the police forces.”

This follows an earlier recommendation to avoid the area.

Video taken by the media also shows police keeping people out of the area.
