ISIS Terrorist Who Killed A Cop And Wounded Three Others In AK47 Paris Rampage After He Was Released EARLY From A 20-Year Sentence For Trying To Kill Police

Champs-Elysees killer Karim Cheurfi had been detained only last month, it has emerged, after informants said he was 'seeking to obtain weapons to kill policemen'

A policeman was shot dead while two other officers were seriously injured by a Kalashnikov-wielding gunman on the Champs Elysees in central Paris last night. 
The ISIS gunman, identified as 39-year-old father Karim Cheurfi - who was jailed for 20 years for trying to kill officers in 2001 - parked his Audi and opened fire after police stopped at a red light on the world famous avenue.  

One traffic officer died instantly with a shot to the head, while the other two were hurt before Cheurfi himself was gunned down by nearby armed police. A ricocheting bullet fired by the terrorist also wounded a female foreign tourist passing by. 
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack and named the attacker as 'Abu Yousif al-Belgiki', which translates to 'the Belgian' in Arabic. 

Dramatic footage captured the moment French police chased and shot at the gunman, who later died. A pump action shotgun and knives were found in the Audi he was driving, which also contained his ID - confirming to detectives that he was known to security services for a number of recent offences and had been flagged as an 'extremist'.  
Officers have been searching the home of the alleged shooter in east Paris and arrested three of his family members. Cheurfi was detained last month after it emerged he was trying to buy weapons 'to kill police', but was released due to lack of evidence.

Intelligence sources said the dead assailant was a known radical on a so-called S-file, for 'State-security'
A French government spokesman said the ISIS gunman began firing against police using 'a weapon of war'. 
Police have now launched a desperate manhunt for a second suspect, who travelled by train to France from Belgium.
The fatal incident unfolded as presidential candidates, including National Front party leader Marine Le Pen, debated on a TV show nearby before Sunday's election.

There was a huge police response to the killing in Paris this evening, with roads around the Paris landmark closed
