Paris: A policewoman who was shot by a gunman wearing a bullet-proof vest just outside Paris has died and a second victim is in serious condition, police said Thursday.

The man escaped after the attack on Thursday morning, which comes just a day after a deadly Islamist assault on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo left 12 dead, although no link has yet been established between the two incidents.
