Developing: Police officer shot dead, another injured in Paris attack

Armed police have blocked off the Champs Elysees in Paris after an officer was killed and another wounded in a shooting.

A report citing a police source said the person who fired on officers had been killed in turn.

There were at least two attackers and police said the shooting was very probably a "terrorist act".

Police urged people to avoid the area.

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.

This is a developing story and we will have more as it unfolds.
