    "Gunshots have been reported outside Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris as 'crowds scattered'.

    Police confirmed there is currently an incident ongoing.


    Paris Police have warned the public to avoid the area.

    They tweeted: "Square in front of #NotreDame Intervention being the number of police, avoid the area."

    A French journalist claimed police shot a man armed with a hammer, but this is unconfirmed."

    Authorities, who are investigating the incident as a potential terror attack, asked members of the public to stay away from the area during ongoing operations.

    The man attacked an officer with a hammer before one of his colleagues opened fire and "neutralised" him, French media reported.

    ...the assailant was shot in the thorax, a police source told Reuters. There was no immediate confirmation of his condition.

    A police union official, Cedric Michel, said a man armed with a hammer went after the police officer, who was patrolling the esplanade in front of the world-famous cathedral known for its gothic architecture and gargoyles. Michel said the attacker was “neutralized” by police.


    A police spokesperson told The Associated Press that the officer used his weapon to shoot the assailant. The spokesperson was not authorized to be publicly named.

    The man attacked officers on duty at the Paris police headquarters, which is next to the cathedral, French media say.
