A policewoman and a city employee were seriously hurt Thursday after a man opened fire with an automatic rifle outside Paris, police said.

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.Two seriously hurt after man fires on police outside Paris

Police initially said the two victims were critical, but Cazeneuve said just the policewoman was fighting for her life.

The incident comes a day after deadly shooting at satirical magazine on Wednesday killed twelve people.

However, no link has yet been established with the attack on Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly.
