Police and airport sources said the individual had been “neutralised” by officers at around 8.20am local time.
According to reports, a “homeless man started bothering security agents and border police were called in to remove him”.
He is said to have initially left while yelling abuse at airport staff before returning and brandishing a knife.
One eyewitness claimed the man was ordered to stop but ignored their warnings and continued advancing towards officers.
A quick-thinking cop then reportedly fired his weapon in response.
The knifeman was reportedly hit in the abdomen, according to the Mirror, before dying at the scene.
He was treated by emergency services but succumbed to his injuries.
A tweet from the Paris police department read: “This morning officers neutralised a threatening individual in possession of a knife at the Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport.”
Security forces have been on high alert for terrorist attacks amid a wave of jihadist killings.
More than 250 people have been killed in such incidents since 2015 in France, often by so-called “lone wolves” who often target police.
