(Before It's News)

A POLICEMAN was killed and three people injured after an AK47-wielding gunman opened fire in central Paris.

A 39-year-old attacker – identified as Karim C. – was shot dead by police following the “terror attack” at the central boulevard of the Champs-Élysées, which ISIS have claimed responsibility for.

Two police officers were ‘seriously injured’ in the attack and officials confirmed a ‘female foreign tourist’ was also wounded.

Last night, police were searching the suspect’s house in Chelles – an eastern Paris suburb – despite his ISIS nickname The Belgian leaking on their Amaq news agency.

It was also reported he was previously jailed for 20 years for shooting at cops in 2003, after being caught driving a stolen car – but was released early.

He is also thought to have been known to security services for “extremist links” and is believed to have been questioned recently in Meaux, outside Paris, after “informants” told cops he was “seeking to obtain weapons to kill policemen.”

Cops have said they are hunting a second suspect who may have been involved in the attack.

Local police advised people to avoid the area after shots were fired at around 9pm local time.

Witnesses said the attacker pulled up beside a stationery police car and fired through the window.

“He parked just behind the van and he got out with a Kalashnikov and I heard six gunshots,” a witness named Chelloug said.

“I thought they were firecrackers, because we all looked around the road and there was no one.

“In fact, he was hidden behind the van and shooting at the police.

Two French police officers killed by gunman in Paris ‘terror’ attack”I think he hit a policeman. As soon as the policeman opened the door of the van, he fell, I think.

“As soon as we saw that, we all ran back inside (a building). We hid and I went up to the first floor and we saw them (the policeman) shoot him (the perpetrator).”

He added: ” I was afraid. I have a two year-old girl and I thought I was going to die… He shot straight at the police officer.”

President Francois Hollande said officials were “convinced” the incident is a terror attack, even before ISIS claimed responsibility.
Paris Prosecutor’s anti-terror office has opened an inquiry.

“One or several attackers have been shot dead by the police. Some officers were hit but the bullets were stopped by their bulletproof vests, but two were hit.
