Champs Elysees shooting: 1 police officer killed, another injured in
Paris incident

One police officer has been killed and another has been wounded in a
shooting Thursday on the Champs Elysees in Paris, a French police
source tells Sky News.

The person who fired on police has been killed, the law enforcement source told Sky News.

Authorities warned people in the heart of the French capital to avoid the area after the shooting.

France has been in a state of emergency following a series of terrorist attacks, including the the November 2015 attacks, which targeted the Bataclan concert hall and Stade de France sports arena in Paris and the deadly truck attack in Nice.

The state of emergency has been extended by several parliamentary votes and remains in effect.

The Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group has claimed responsibility for Thursday's shooting in Paris on the Champs-Élysées.

The attack left one police officer dead and two other officers severely injured.

According to ISIS news agency Amaq, the shooter was Abu Yusuf al-Beljiki, USA Today reports. The American-based organization SITE Intel Group, who monitors terror activities and communications on the Internet, found the ISIS claim for al-Beljiki's actions.

French authorities say the targeting of police was intentional in this terrorist attack.

Since the shooting, there was speculation as to whether the shooting was a random criminal incident in a major city or whether terrorism played a role. Paris and the entirety of France has been attacked before in ISIS-claimed incidents, including a truck attack in Nice and bombings and shootings in Paris.

Thursday's shooting comes as France is engaged in a presidential election. Four main candidates are in close contention, with Marine Le Pen drawing the most attention. Le Pen has spoken out against immigration and recently said that she would suspend all immigration into the country.
