At least one person has been killed and four others injured in a shooting at a Paris bar, media reports say, and police have arrested one of the two attackers.
The incident took place in the French capital’s 11th arrondissement on Monday night (local time), the Sputnik news agency reported, citing district mayor Francois Voglin.
The district mayor confirmed that the shooting took place and that one of the assailants was arrested.
He said that at this stage there is no element to know the motives behind this barbaric act.
“One person was killed and 4 injured in a shooting this evening at a chicha bar on rue Poppincourt #Paris11. At this stage, no factor makes it possible to know the motivation behind this barbaric act,” Vaughn said.
He added that the national police were very actively looking for the “second” shooter and that “a medico-psychological cell will be opened as soon as possible for residents or witnesses”.
