Video Preview

A gunman who opened fire in the Paris offices of the leftwing daily Liberation, leaving one photographer seriously wounded, has sparked a second security alert after he fired shots outside the Societe Generale's Granite Tower in the La Defense business district and took a hostage on Champs-Elysées, Ib Times reports.

The man entered the Liberation office shortly before 09.15am GMT, armed with a hunting rifle, and fired two shots before fleeing. The victim, a photographer's assistant aged 27, was hit in the thorax and in the stomach and is now in critical condition.

After the Liberation shooting, the gunman, described as a "tough-looking skinhead in bulletproof vest" by witnesses, fired shots outside the headquarters of French bank Societe Generale.
