A MAN who snatched a soldier’s gun before being shot dead at Paris Orly airport is believed to have earlier fired at a cop during a road check, officials have said.

The suspect, who a police source told Reuters was a “radicalised Muslim known to authorities”, wrestled the soldier, deployed to stop terrorists at Paris’ second biggest airport, to the ground at about 8.30am.

The Paris prosecutors office said the suspect was a 39-year-old man with multiple offences on his criminal record, but was not on the country's

Shortly before the airport shooting a man travelling by car opened fire during a routine stop-and-search operation in the north of the city, slightly wounding one officer in the head.

The man then fled, threatening a motorist with a weapon to steal her car. Police say that car was later found close to Orly Airport.

The suspect's brother and father have also been taken into police custody, a judicial source told Reuters.

Passengers at the airport reported hearing shots at about 8.30am.

French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said the attacker, whom he did not identify, assaulted three Air Force soldiers who were patrolling the airport.

He said the soldier who was attacked managed to hold on to her rifle and the two soldiers she was with opened fire to protect her and the public.

There is some confusion as to whether the suspect ever had the gun with a witness telling  BFM TV the man was in possession of the soldier's rifle and threatening her.

The witness identified only as Dominque said: "The soldiers took aim at the man, who in turn pointed the gun he had seized at the two soldiers."

The suspect fled into a shop at the airport before he was shot dead, an interior ministry spokesman said.

The spokesman said no others were wounded at the airport.

Anti-terror cops have flooded Paris' second biggest airport and all flights are being redirected.

Bomb disposal experts were also called in and have confirmed the suspect was not wearing a suicide vest.

France is currently under a state of emergency following a series of attacks over the past two years.

French president Francois Hollande has praised the courage and efficiency of troops and police following the incidents at Orly Airport and in a northern Paris suburb.

In a written statement, Hollande reaffirms the state's "determination to act without respite to fight terrorism, defend our compatriots' security and ensure the protection of the territory."

Today’s incident comes as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met with French Second World War veterans at Les Invalides, in Paris, as well as victims and members of the emergency services from the Bataclan and Nice attacks.

The royal couple are currently staying at the British Ambassador’s residence by the British Embassy and will attend the France v Wales rugby match later today.
