Terror Suspected In Deadly Paris Shooting Days Before Election

Terror Suspected In Deadly Paris Shooting Days Before Election

Describing the incident, witnesses said how a auto parked next to a police transport vehicle before a man got out and began firing an automatic weapon, killing one policeman and injuring another - plus a passing female tourist.

One officer was seriously wounded and the second officer died at the scene. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Thousands of troops and armed police have been deployed to guard tourist hotspots such as the Champs Elysees or other potential targets like government buildings and religious sites. "But you only have resources to follow so many".

One police officer was killed and another wounded in a shooting attack Thursday evening in central Paris.

In a televised address, outgoing French President Francois Hollande called the shooting the work of terrorists. They were clearly targeting the police. Parliament voted in December to extend the extraordinary provisions to ensure the protection of upcoming presidential and general elections.

The group confirmed the identity of the attacker as Abu Yousif - the Belgian through their Amaq news agency. The next question is whether this was controlled by IS but it will take 24 hours before we will know this.

The shooting - on the most famous boulevard in the French capital, always crowded with tourists and commuters - came just two days after authorities arrested two men in the southern city of Marseille on suspicion of plotting what Paris prosecutors described as an "imminent" and "violent" attack.

The Daesh terrorist group has reportedly claimed responsibility for the Paris attack.

"Another terrorist attack in Paris".

"We have to be strong and we have to be vigilant, and I've been saying it for a long time", he added.

President Francois Hollande has said he was convinced the atrocity was terror-related. What could the possible political implications be?

A witness told Reuters that a man got out of a vehicle and began shooting with a Kalashnikov. "The world's eyes are on France right now".

Belgian security officials had warned French counterparts before the attack that El Osri was a "very unsafe individual en route to France" aboard a high-speed train.

Police raided the home of the gunman on Thursday shortly after he who carried out the attack. Here in the US, the Obama administration aligned itself with those who wanted to murder policemen.

SHAPIRO: How much has security and the threat of terrorism been a part of this campaign? But this has brought it to the forefront again.

Paris police ordered the immediate evacuation of the Champs-Elysees and suspension of service at nearby metro stations.
