An armed man took hostages at a school complex in Paris

An armed man took hostages Tuesday morning at a school complex just south of Paris, authorities said. Children were initially among the hostages, but the man is now holding only a parent, the reports.

One police official said the man was carrying a gun; others said they did not know what weapon he had.

Police say an armed man who took hostages Tuesday morning at a school complex has released the last one unhurt.

A police official said the hostage-taker was still inside the complex, which includes nursery and elementary schools.

He said the last hostage had "no injuries." Children initially taken hostage were freed earlier.
