The man was described as "determined and violent" by police, who surrounded the building where three hostages were being held on Tuesday.

The Paris Police Prefecture confirmed to CNN that there was "a police intervention" underway at Rue des Petites Ecuries in the 10th arrondissement of the French capital. Special units and fire services were at the scene.

One hostage has a head injury, Yves Lefebvre, a police union spokesman, said.
