Police are hunting a gunman believed to be behind two shootings and a carjacking in central Paris that has left one young photographer fighting for his life.
A large-scale manhunt was underway in the area around the Champs-Elysées for a man believed to be armed with a sawn off shotgun and a black sports bag containing grenades.
Police have described the suspect as a European in his early forties with a shaved head covered by a cap, wearing a long green coat and possibly a bullet-proof vest. He is said to be of medium height and heavy build.
All major news outlets in Paris were under police protection after the gunman burst into the headquarters of Libération newspaper and opened fire.
