Paris Police Officer Killed, Another Wounded; Champs-Elysee Shooting Seen as Terrorist Act

Paris police say the shooting this evening (April 20, 2017) that left one police officer dead and another one wounded in the famed Champs-Elysees shopping district was likely a "terrorist act," according to The Daily Beast website.

The assailant was killed in an exchange of gunfire.

A police spokeswoman said the attacker shot at police officers standing guard near the Franklin Roosevelt subway station.

The assault came three days before France votes in the first round of its highly contentious presidential election.
