A manhunt was underway in the French capital Monday after a gunman opened fire at a bank and a newspaper office - seriously injuring a photographer - before hijacking a car to escape, police said.

The 27-year-old victim, who worked for the Liberation newspaper’s “Next” magazine, was shot in the abdomen and arm.

It followed another shooting on Friday at the Paris offices of news channel, BFMTV.

"As long as this person is still on the loose and we do not know the motives, this represents a threat," Interior Minister Manuel Valls told reporters, according to Reuters. "We must move fast."

The first shooting happened in lobby of the newspaper's officers, in the business district of La Defense, at 10.15 a.m. local time (4.15 a.m. ET) Monday, Liberation said on its website.

Laurent Nunez, director of the cabinet of the Paris Police Prefecture, told BFMTV that three shots were subsequently fired in front of the Société General bank, in west end of the city.

Police then received a report that a driver had been taken hostage by an armed man who fled on foot near the Champs Elysees.

The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
