A female police officer has died after being shot in southern Paris this morning, less than 24hrs after 12 people were killed at the Charlie Hebdo headquarters in Paris.
According to a Sky news report, the police officer had been called to the scene of a traffic accident that occurred around 7:15 am involving a grey Clio, according to France Info, when she was fired at.
A man wearing a bullet-proof vest fired at the police woman and a civilian, who is thought to be a council worker, with an automatic rifle, seriously injuring the officer.
iTele said both victims of the shooting were seen lying on the ground after the attack.
The attack occurred near Porte de Chatillon south of Paris.
AFP news agency reported that one of the suspects, a 53-year-old man, has since been detained.
Police said the other suspect is on the run.
It is not believed to be related to the attack a day earlier on the Charlie Hebdo magazine in which 12 people were killed.
