A man opened fire with an automatic rifle outside Paris on Thursday, killing a policewoman and injuring another person, but no link has yet been established with Wednesday's deadly attack on a satirical magazine.
The gunman is still on the run, said Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve -- who rushed to the scene at Malakoff just south of the city -- contradicting information given earlier by a source close to the case, who said the suspect had been detained.
Police initially said the two victims were critical, and later on in the day the policewoman died.
The incident comes on a day of mourning in France after gunmen stormed the office of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday, killing eight journalists, two police and two others.The men are still thought to be on the run, and there has so far been no claim of responsibility for the massacre that has deeply shocked France.
