Police are searching for a ninth suspect believed to be involved in the terror attacks on Parisian restaurants and bars last Friday.
Surveillance footage showed a third man accompanying brothers Salah and Brahim Abdeslam, firing shots from a vehicle, which was later found abandoned along with three Kalashnikov assault rifles.
It is not clear if the unidentified man remains on the run or if he is one of two suspects currently being detained in Belgium.
Salah Abdeslam is believed to have fled across the border to his native country Belgium, with Belgian police releasing more pictures of him.
Mohamed Abdeslam, the older brother of international fugitive Salah, has urged the suspect to turn himself in to police.
“I would tell him to surrender. That’s the best solution,” he said.
“But of course, if he has something to do with it, he must accept responsibility.”
Police began searching the properties where it is believed the 26-year-old was staying in the last days before the attack.
Brahim was part of a suicide bombing outside one of the cafes.
The Islamic State (IS) group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, which left 129 people dead and at least 400 people wounded.
French warplanes have launched fresh raids on IS targets in Syria in retaliation. “At this moment, our air force … 10 fighter jets are again hitting Raqqa, and as you know tomorrow the aircraft carrier Charles De Gaulle will leave for the eastern Mediterranean to continue strikes on specific targets in particular around Raqqa and Deir ez-Zour,” said Jean-Yves Le Drian, France’s defence minister.
Satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, whose Paris offices were targeted in a January terror attack, has released the cover for its next issue in response to the weekend’s violence, featuring the message “They have arms. F*** them. We have the champagne!”
