UPDATE: A SPOKESMAN for the French Interior Ministry has now confirmed that there was only one individual who was known to the authorities and he opened fire on officers, killing one and leaving two injured before being shot himself.
The killer's apartment is being searched and it is possible that this action was in response to the arrest of two Daesh supporters in France two days ago.
Police sources have reported that two police officers have been shot, both fatally, in a suspected terrorist attack in the heart of Paris on the evening of April 20.
Two attackers are believed to be involved and it has been confirmed that one has been killed.
Authorities have warned the public to stay away from the area and as yet there are no details of what has happened to the second attacker who may still be on the loose.
There is also speculation that this may have been a robbery that went wrong.
