PARIS - Bullet cases found at the site where a jogger was shot and wounded on Wednesday evening match the gun found at the scene of a fatal shooting in a supermarket east Paris two days later, the Paris prosecutor said citing ballistics tests.

Four hostages died in Friday's siege on a Jewish supermarket by an Islamic militant, Amedy Coulibaly, who was killed by police. He is also the main suspect in the killing of a policewoman on Thursday.

The Paris prosecutor said in a statement the ballistics tests were conducted on five bullet cartridges found at the site where the 32-year old jogger was shot in the Paris suburb of Fontenay-aux-Roses, and on the Tokarev automatic pistol discovered at the supermarket.

The two sites are about 15 kilometers (9 miles) apart.
