"Our thoughts are very much with the family. Solidarity with his injured colleagues and those close to them".

A man who shot a Parisian police officer to death on the Champs-Elysees Thursday night was known to French security services for radical Islamist activities, a source close to the investigation told CNN.

A police officer has been killed and two others injured in a suspected terrorist shooting in the centre of Paris.

Local authorities told people to avoid the area as it was placed on lockdown on Thursday night.

French authorities had not identify the gunman, but President Francois Hollande said there was "no doubt" the attack was terrorism.

The Presidential Palace, the Elysee, is only a few blocks away.

A police helicopter was seen flying low over the area.

An interior ministry spokesman said it was too early to say what the motive was for the attack.

Mr Brandet rejected reports that a second policeman had died. Policemen were both inside and outside the vehicle.

Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said on BFM television that a man came out of a auto and opened fire on a police vehicle.

The Champs-Elysees, a top tourist attraction in Paris, is a main road lined with restaurants, cafes, exclusive designer boutiques and tourist shops.
