Paris, France- Two police officers were shot by a gunman on Champs-Élysées, a popular tourist boulevard in the capital. One police officer was killed and the other wounded after the gunman got out of a vehicle and fired at the officers. The gunman’s identity has not been released yet but he reportedly killed himself after shooting the police officers. Authorities stated this shooting was possibly a terrorist attack.
Police said the shooting was very probably a “terrorist act,” according to Reuters, while other reports suggested robbery may have been the motive. The French interior ministry said it was too early to judge the reason behind the attack.
