The Associated Press

PARIS (AP) A security official says the two brothers suspected in the Charlie Hebdo massacre came out firing, prompting the assault on the building where they had holed up with a hostage.

The official was not authorized to speak about the sensitive operations and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Officials say the brothers died in the assault.

Another official, police union representative Christophe Crepin, said it appeared that the gunman who took hostages at a kosher market had also died in a nearly simultaneous raid there.

Crepin spoke to LCI televison.
