As we are just days away to see who will be the next leader of France, a sad terrorist attack has occurred and chaos is breaking out in the streets.
From The Metro.uk:
“A police officer has been shot dead in Paris in what officials have described as a likely “terrorist” attack. Another officer has reportedly been injured after a ‘Kalashnikov’-wielding gunman opened fire in the French capital.
The shooting occurred on the Champs Elysees – one of the world’s most prestigious boulevards – this evening.
At least two attackers are thought to have been involved in the horrific attack, one of whom has reportedly been killed.

The other is feared to be on the run.
Police say the incident – which came as presidential candidates took part in a TV debate nearby – was probably “a terrorist act”.
Paris’s police union has suggested that the tragic officer was shot dead by the gunman while sitting in a car at a red light.
The attacker is said to have been driving by at the time.
Hundreds of heavily armed officers have flooded the area, while a helicopter has been seen flying over the capital.”
