A fashionista, who died on Thursday, has been identified as fashionista Jean-Luc Leger.
Leger, the founder of fashion magazine Le Matin, was found dead on Thursday at the home of a friend.
His body was later identified as being that of the 31-year-old Paris Fashionist, Jean-Pierre Leger , who was shot dead outside his Paris apartment.
He had been shot by an unknown gunman.
The French interior ministry confirmed the death of the Paris Fashionists brother, Pierre, a member of the French parliament.
Pierre Legger was shot by unknown assailants outside his home in the north of Paris on Friday.
A friend of Pierre Leger told the Associated Press news agency that he had recently returned to France from Washington, where he was working as an international trade representative for the World Bank.
He said Pierre Legger had been in touch with his brother for some time.
The friend, who asked to remain anonymous, said the pair had been spending a lot of time together in Paris.
He said the French government had ordered an investigation into the death and would be releasing details on Thursday.
A statement from the Paris government said Pierre was the “founder of the first international fashion magazine” in France.
The magazine was launched in 1985 and has become one of the biggest publications in the world.
A memorial service is scheduled for Friday at the St Denis cathedral in Paris, where a memorial service was held for Pierre Leg in 2015.
Pierre was also the founder and editor-in-chief of Le Matine magazine, which was the first French magazine to introduce women to fashion.
Pierre Leggier, a professor at the Paris School of Economics and a prominent economist, was among the first to study the role of women in fashion.
His death was the latest in a series of fatal shootings by armed attackers across France.
Earlier this month, an assailant opened fire at the offices of the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo in Paris with an assault rifle.
On Thursday, gunmen stormed the offices and offices of another satirical weekly, Le Figaro, killing three people and wounding more than 50.
A police officer was killed in a separate attack at a satirical weekly in central Paris.
In July, gunmen killed six people at a kosher grocery in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis.
That attack also killed three police officers and wounded five others.
