The hostage crisis emerged hours after the Charlie Hebdo killers Cherif and Said Kouachi took one person hostage at a business premises near a Paris airport.
Police say the suspected hostage taker is Amedy Coulibaly, 32, who is wearing body armour and brandishing two Kalashnikov automatic weapons.
He is working with a woman called Hayat Boumeddiene, 26, considered ‘armed and dangerous’, and is said to have yelled at police: 'You know who I am' when they responded to the shooting.
Police have now ordered all shops in Paris' famed Jewish district to be immediately closed, while the gunman is threatening to kill the hostages if the Kouachi brothers are stormed.
The mayor's office in Paris announced the closures of shops along the Rosiers street in Paris' Marais neighbourhood, in the heart of the tourist district and about a kilometre away from the offices of newspaper Charlie Hebdo where 12 people were killed on Wednesday.
