Police arrested three people overnight following the killing of a police officer on Paris’ Champs-Elysees, local media reported Friday.
Citing prosecutors, broadcaster BFMTV said the three suspects were family members of the man who shot a male officer as he sat in a police bus on Thursday evening. They were arrested in an eastern suburb of the city.
Investigators said they had identified the gunman from identity documents found in his car but did not name the 39-year-old French national.
BFMTV reported that a pump-action shotgun and knives had been found in his car.
The attacker was killed after opening fire on the police vehicle with what witnesses described as a Kalashnikov assault rifle at around 9 p.m. local time (1900GMT) and attempting to flee.
Two police officers were injured in the assault, one of whom remains in hospital.
The attack came less than three days before French voters were due to go to the polls in presidential elections.
