A suspect who tried to attack security forces on the Champs-Elysees shopping district in Paris Monday afternoon — when he rammed his car into a police van — had a rifle and explosives in his vehicle, French investigators said.

The attacker died shortly after the incident, the French interior minister said. The attacker, a 33-year-old man, was badly burned after his car exploded when he deliberately crashed it into a police van. The police van caught fire, but it was quickly contained, officials said. The bomb squad was called to the scene.

Authorities discovered a gas tank and an AK-47 rife in the attacker’s car, Fox News confirmed. The man was known by police and was under surveillance, Pierre-Henry Brandet, a spokesman for the interior ministry, told Fox News.
