PARIS (AP) – A French police official says a policewoman shot in an early morning attack on the southern edge of Paris has died.

The officer was stopping to investigate a traffic accident when an assailant opened fire, hitting her and a street sweeper. Emmanuel Cravello of the Alliance police union said she later died of her injuries.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve says the attacker in the shooting Thursday remained at large.  He and Cravello cautioned against jumping to any conclusions about the attack, which has not been linked to the assault on the newspaper Charlie Hebdo, which left two police officers among the dead.
