    FRANCE - Policeman shot by two terrorists w/machine guns in Paris, 20 April 2017

    "A police officer was shot dead and another seriously wounded by two Kalashnikov-wielding gunmen on the Champs Elysees in central Paris tonight.

    French police said that the incident was probably a 'terrorist act' and the world famous avenue was on lockdown by 9pm.

    Heavily armed officers had flooded the area and a third individual - believed to be the killer - was also hurt and 'neutralised', according to police sources.

    Reports suggest 'at least' two people were involved in the attack which took place as presidential candidates took part in a TV debate nearby.

    Sky news are reporting that the french ministry says that the reason for the shooting is not confirmed. Some reports it was a robbery, while another saying that the police was targeted. So I think its a wait and see situation

    Hope its cleared up soon.

    The Interior Ministry spokesman said on BFM TV the officers were deliberately targeted and the police union added that one of them was shot dead while sat in a car at a red light.*

    French President Francois Hollande has scheduled an emergency meeting following the shootings on Thursday evening.

    Not sure if this is different from what you shared Skibaboo. If it is apologies for double post.

    (Quote from link)In the meantime, Reuters reports, citing police sources, that shots were fired at another location near the Champs Elysees boulevard.

    One police source said the attacker was “known to the authorities.” A search was underway at the attacker’s home east of Paris.
