'Terrorists' kill two police officers and wound another in AK-47 ambush on the Champs Elysees with one attacker killed as more shots are fired at new location - and French Presidential candidates debate nearby

Two police officers were shot dead by a pair of 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 shot dead, according to police sources.

Police are searching the home of the shooter in east Paris and the attacker had previously mentioned on social media that he 'wanted to kill police', according to BFM TV.
