French newspaper Le Parisien reported on Wednesday that police have identified a suspected accomplice to Amedy Coulibaly, the gunman who killed four people in a Paris kosher shop last week before being killed by police, according to CNN.

The man identified by police may have driven Coulibaly to the kosher market.

According to Le Parisien, French police identified Coulibaly’s potential accomplice with keys to a motorbike found in an apartment they raided over the weekend. Police also reportedly found weapons and two ISIS flags in the apartment.

The French police believe Coulibaly’s accomplice fled France, potentially to Syria. Authorities also suspect the accomplice may have shot a jogger last week in Paris, according to Le Parisien.

Authorities are also seeking Hayat Boumeddiene, the girlfriend of Amedy Coulibaly, who has reportedly fled France for Syria. Although one report stated that Boumeddiene was seen leaving the Kosher shop on Friday after the attack, a French official said she may not have been in the country at the time of the attack.
