The retired train driver, who is suspected far-right extremist, had been released on bail just days earlier for attacking two migrants with a sabre-type sword.

Riots erupted in the French capital on Friday after three people, all understood to be Kurdish activists, were shot dead.

Police rushed to the scene to the 10th arrondissement in the north of Paris just after midday (11am GMT) following reports that at least eight gunshots had been heard.

A haunting clip has now emerged appearing to show the alleged killer entering a barber clutching a gun after the attack.

CCTV footage shows customers and staff running away from the salon floor just moments before the man walked in.

He then appears to shoot in the direction of those hiding.

A scuffle then seems to break out as the workers and customers detain and disarm the suspected gunman.

One of the men can be seen carrying the gun away while another starts making calls.

The suspected attacker was arrested before being taken to hospital with facial injuries.

The clothing worn by the man in the clip matches the description of the outfit worn by the gunman arrested.

Investigators are considering a possible racist motive for the shooting as anti-terror police in France probe the incident.

The French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said that the suspect “obviously wanted to target foreigners”.

French President Emmanuel Macron said the country’s Kurds were the target of a “heinous” attack.

He tweeted: “Thoughts for the victims, those who are fighting to survive, to their families and loved ones.”

Anger erupted following the shooting as rioters clashed with police, started fires and formed barricades.

Riot cops unleashed tear gas while pictures showed an injured protester being carried to safety by the crowd and hurt police officers being pulled away by colleagues.

The shooting took place close to a Kurdish cultural centre on Rue d’Enghien in the 10th Arrondissement of the French capital.
