    One policeman dead, another wounded and shooter killed on Paris's Champs Elysees

    BREAKING NEWS: One policeman dead, another wounded and shooter killed on Paris's Champs Elysees
    Rue de Rivoli in central Paris has been closed by police officers this evening
    Reports indicate that 'suspicious items' are currently being assessed by police
    It is believed the Paris Metro service is not stopping on the busy street tonigh


    By Abe Hawken For Mailonline
    PUBLISHED: 13:42 EDT, 20 April 2017 | UPDATED: 15:34 EDT, 20 April 2017


    One police officer has been killed following an incident on the Champs Elysees in Paris this evening, according to French police.
    Another officer was seriously wounded and the attacker has been killed on the world famous avenue.
    By 9pm the road was locked down with hundreds of heavily-armed officers flooding the area - popular with tourists.
    It came as presidential candidates took place in a TV debate nearby and French police have advised those in the city to stay clear of the area.

    France is currently under a state of emergency following a spate of Islamist terror attacks.
    The shooting comes just hours after one of the busiest roads in the capital was closed off by police as officers dealt with a 'suspicious package'.
    Reports suggest that items were discovered by officers as Rue de Rivoli, in the centre of the French capital, remained shut.
    Stunned witnesses have described seeing a large police presence on the two-mile-long road.
    It is believed that the Paris Metro service is not stopping there as officers try and deal with the incident.

    The incident on Thursday comes as France remains in a state of emergency following the Paris attacks in 2015 and the Bastille Day killings in Nice in 2016.

    Rue de Rivoli is a busy commercial street just north of the River Seine which is home to some of the most fashionable shops in the world.

    Cyril, 40, a witness, said: “I was on the corner beside Marks and Spencer and Zara, waiting in my car for a friend, 10 or 15 metres from a police van. I saw a man all in black approaching the van as if he was asking for information, and he took out a Kalashnikov and fired, with his right hand.”

    Pierre-Henry Brandet, the interior ministry spokesman, has said one police officer was killed and two seriously wounded. He said reports of two dead were incorrect. The attacker has not been identified, he said.

    He also said there was only one shooting and reports of a second were incorrect.

    Attack comes just three days before presidential election
    The attack came three days before the first round of balloting in France's tense presidential election. Security is high preceding the vote after police said they arrested two men Tuesday in what they described as a thwarted terror attack.

    The two terror suspects were arrested in Marseille on Tuesday and found an arsenal of weapons and bomb-making equipment in their flat along with an Islamic State (Isil) flag.

    It quickly emerged that police had been watching the pair for several weeks before they finally detained them on suspicion of plotting “an imminent and violent attack” in the run-up to Sunday’s first-round vote.

    8:49pm
    'Nothing is being ruled out'
    Yvan Assioma of the police union Alliance said:

    The exact circumstances are still unclear but I can confirm the tragic death of one of our colleagues. Our thoughts are very much with the family. One or several attackers have been shot dead by the police. Some officers were hit but the bullets were stopped by their bulletproof vests, but two were hit.

    Nothing is being ruled out for the time being, terrorism or a criminal act.

    8:48pm
    Details of attack emerging
    One of the suspects got out of a car and began shooting "with a Kalashnikov", hitting a policeman, an eyewitness has told Reuters.

    8:46pm
    Helicopters flying low over city centre
    Hundreds of heavily-armed officers are out in force on the Champs Elysees and around the Place de la Concorde.

    Well......... he came in from Belgium, reportedly. And with the EU there are no border patrols anymore. He just waltzed right in. Nobody to stop him. Nobody to check his car.

    perhaps if they hold just a few more prayer vigils, and place a few more candles at the scene of the murder, then things will change.

    #BREAKING Paris Champs Elysees gunman named as Karim Cheurfi. Officials say a note from #IS was found near his body

    6 minutes ago


    The gunman who shot dead a policeman on the Champs Elysees has been named by the Paris prosecutor as Karim Cheurfi, a convicted criminal.

    He used a Kalashnikov assault rifle to kill the police officer with two bullets to the head, François Molins told journalists in the French capital.

    A note defending so-called Islamic State was found near his body, having presumably fallen from his pocket.

    Cheurfi had four criminal convictions, the prosecutor said.

    Friday is the last day of campaigning before Sunday's presidential election.

    Paris gunman was arrested in February over planning police attack


    Police detain three family members French citizen after shooting claimed by Islamic State

    Islamic State claimed credit for the death of a policeman and the wounding of two others in a shooting attack on the Champs-Élysées on Thursday night. A woman tourist was also wounded.

    The Amaq “press agency” said the attack was carried out by “Yussef the Belgiani”. But the gunman, who was shot dead as he ran down the pavement firing at policemen, was a 39-year-old French citizen, identified by foreign media as Karim Cheroufi. Investigators found a written note defending Islamic State next to, a judicial source told Reuters.

    The Paris prosecutor Francois Molins declined to reveal Cheroufi’s identity in a late night press conference, to protect the secrecy of the investigation. The attacker appeared to have acted alone, but police are seeking to determine “if he had accomplices,” Mr Molins said.

    Police searched Cheroufi’s home in Chelles, east of Paris, and detained three of his family members.

    Cheroufi first came to the attention of the authorities when he stole a car in 2001. He seized a gun inside a police commissariat and attacked a police trainee. After four years in preventive detention, he was sentenced to 15 years in prison for attempted murder in 2005. He was released in 2015, and was detained last February 23rd on suspicion he was planning to attack police. He figures in the files of the DGSE intelligence agency, and is believed to have been radicalised in prison.

    The attack occurred three days before the first round of the French presidential election. “Nothing must interrupt the democratic rendez-vous,” prime minister Bernard Cazeneuve said after a defence council meeting on Friday morning. He appealed to the French “sense of responsibility” and appealed to his compatriots to “not give in to fear, intimidation, division. Obscurantism must be fought. Unity must prevail,” Mr Cazeneuve said.

    The three leading presidential candidates, the conservative Francois Fillon, the far right candidate Marine Le Pen and the centrist Emmanuel Macron, all cancelled rallies on Friday. Mr Macron told France Inter radio it would be inappropriate to hold a gathering in his home town of Amiens after the death of the policeman, and that he did not want to divert police resources to protect his rally.

    Fifty thousand police and gendarmes have been mobilised to protect 67,000 polling stations on Sunday.

    Cheroufi pulled up alongside a police van near the top of the Champs-Élysées in a grey Audi car just before 9pm on Thursday. The van, from the 32nd public order intervention company, had been stationed in front of Turkish airlines in anticipation of a demonstration by Kurds.

    The gunman jumped out of the car and opened fire with an automatic assault rifle on the van, fatally wounding a policeman in the head. Police found a pump-action shot gun and knives in the car.

    Cheroufi then ran down the pavement, continuing to shoot at policemen who were patroling on foot. He was shot dead. Witnesses said the shoot-out was very loud, very violent and lasted only 30 seconds.

    Police locked down the area overnight. Cheroufi’s Audi and the bullet-pocked police van were hauled away. Barricades were lifted around 5 am and metro service resumed. Several windows had been shattered by bullets. Cheroufi was shot dead in front of a Marks & Spencers store, which was to open an hour late on Friday morning.

    Islamic State, which is also known as Isis, has specifically instructed its followers to attack French police and soldiers. This is the eleventh time they have been the target of jihadist attacks.
