A auto has crashed into a police van before bursting into flames around the Champs Élysées area of central Paris, police officials say.
Brandet told reporters the driver, who was armed, was "most likely dead", adding that it was hard to say for sure while the area where he was lying was being checked for explosives.
French media, quoting police sources, say the incident earlier today was deliberate.
The Paris prosecutor's counter-terrorism unit said it had opened an investigation into the incident, which occurred only a short walk away from the Elysees presidential palace and the U.S. embassy. Paris police said neither gendarmes nor passers-by were injured.
The police department tweeted the warning Monday without providing further details.

The famous site was the site of an April shooting in which a police officer was killed by an attacker supporting the Islamic State terror group. France is under a state of emergency after a string of deadly Islamic extremist attacks.
