Shooting outside a Paris hospital on Monday One person was dead and one critically injured
 
PARIS, French - One person was killed and one critically injured in a targeted shooting outside a Paris hospital on Monday, the city prosecutor's office told CNN.

The attacker fled the scene outside the Henry Dunant Hospital, in the 16th arrondissement of the French capital, using a two-wheeled vehicle.

The prosecutor's office said that initial investigations suggest the deceased, a 33-year-old man, was "intentionally targeted by the gunman."

The injured second victim, a 33-year-old woman, was identified as a security guard at the hospital. The prosecutor's office said it believed, based on early investigation, that she was not linked to the first victim. She is currently hospitalized and "her condition remains critical," the prosecutor's office added.

The prosecutor's office said an investigation has been opened for murder and attempted murder by an organized group, and for criminal conspiracy.
