French police say two shooters killed a police officer on Thursday while wounding another. Officials said it was likely an act of terror.
The shooter has reportedly been killed as well while the other may still be at large. The area has been closed to pedestrians and passersby.
People in the area have been told to steer clear as a security operation ensues.
The event occurs just days before French voters head to voting booths in France’s first round of presidential elections. Terrorism has been noted as a significant priority for many of the candidates.
