A hostage-taking Friday that saw four people seized at a bank in Paris has ended with the gunman giving himself up, police said.
The armed man surrendered around 1700 GMT, about two hours after he had entered the bank, police said.
"He gave himself up after negotiations," releasing a final female hostage he had kept after giving up three others, a police source said.
The man entered the branch of CIC bank in Paris's southern 13th district around 1450 GMT with a handgun and was demanding social housing for himself and his son.
