The scenes outside Libération yesterday.

It is being reported that French police have made an arrest after a two-day manhunt for a gunman.

A man went on a shooting rampage yesterday, leaving one person fighting for his life.

Shots were fired at the offices of the French newspaper Libération daily, and at the headquarters of one of the biggest French banks.

Meanwhile, a man claimed he was forced to drive a gunman to the Champs-Elysees in the city.

The same man is thought to be behind an attack at a TV station on Friday night.

French authorities are refusing to confirm reports of the arrest.
