Shots fired at two Paris locations, journalist wounded
Shots were fired at the offices of a left-wing French newspaper and outside the headquarters of a major bank in Paris on Monday and police said the same gunman appeared to have carried out both attacks. The assailant opened fire at the central Paris office of left-wing daily newspaper Liberation, seriously injuring a photographer's assistant shortly before fleeing, police and staff at the newspaper said. About 90 minutes later, a man opened fire on the street outside the suburban headquarters of Societe Generale, wounding no one, police and a spokeswoman for the bank said. Shortly afterwards, a gunman hijacked a car nearby and forced the driver to drop him on the Champs-Elysees Avenue in central Paris, the driver told police.
