IS's Amaq news agency identified the attacker as one of its soldiers naming him as Abu Yousif, a Belgian.

While it remained unclear what was behind the latest spasm of deadly violence in Paris, the city has had to contend with a series of terrorist attacks that have terrified the French.

One policeman was killed and another was wounded in the shooting, police said.

The gunman opened fire as the officers were guarding an area near the Franklin Roosevelt metro station on Thursday night. The Interior Ministry spokesperson said on BFM TV that officers were deliberately targeted. A French government spokesman said the assailant was armed with an automatic firearm akin to a "war weapon". She said he appeared to be acting alone. He said it is too early to know if the gunman had an accomplice.

French presidential election candidates Marine Le Pen and Francois Fillon cancelled their campaign events scheduled for Friday in what would have been the last day of campaigning for candidates before the first round of voting in the presidential elections on Sunday.

But local police said the shooting was "very probably a terrorist act" and advised people to avoid the area.

The Champs Elysees, where the shooting occurred, was sealed off.

The Avenue des Champs-Élysées is an avenue in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, 1.9 kilometres long and 70 metres wide, running between the Place de la Concorde and the Place Charles de Gaulle, where the Arc de Triomphe is located.

Brandit stopped short of calling the incident a terrorist attack, saying that authorities are looking at many possible motives, and that terror investigators are part of the investigation. "It is a very, very awful thing that's going on in the world today, but it looks like another terrorist attack".

"What can you say? It never ends", the President said.

Former French President Nicola Sarkozy's tweeted: "To our law enforcement: support, strength, courage. Some were crying. There were tens, maybe even hundreds of them".

He said several Métro stations had been closed while police make sure the area is safe.

The shooting, which occured just three days before the most tightly contested presidential election in living memory is being investigated by the counter-terrorism office.
