One policeman has been killed and another wounded in a shooting incident in central Paris, a police source said.

Police said at least two attackers were involved and one was killed in the incident, where police were fired upon on Thursday night on the Champs Elysees. They said it was very probably a terrorist act.

Police authorities told the public to avoid the area.

A Reuters reporter saw a helicopter flying low over central Paris, apparently part of a follow-up police operation.
