Three police officers were shot dead and a fourth wounded in Puy de Dome in central France on Wednesday after being called out to a domestic disturbance, AFP reported, citing prosecutors.
The police officers were shot by a 48-year-old man as they attempted to rescue a woman in a domestic disturbance, said the report.
Police approached the house shortly after midnight and were targeted by gunfire, added the report.
French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin later announced the suspected gunman's death.
