Paris - A man was shot while out for an evening run in a town south-west of Paris, receiving bullet wounds to the leg and back, a police source said on Thursday.

The 32-year-old was jogging in the town of Fontenay-aux-Roses on Wednesday night when he was struck by automatic gunfire in an attack which police said had not been linked to a shooting on Thursday morning in nearby Montrouge which left a policewoman dead.

The jogger was in hospital but his life was not in danger, the source said.

Police were still searching for the attacker.

France is reeling from the attack Wednesday at satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo that saw gunmen mow down 12 people, including journalists and two policemen.
