Flere maskerte personer skjøt mandag med automatgevær mot unge mennesker i nærheten av et kultursenter i Marseille.

Ifølge en talsmann for politiet i Marseille, Christophe Reynaud, blir hendelsen ikke etterforsket som terror, melder NTB.

Gjerningspersonene ankom i tre biler og åpnet ild med Kalasjnikov-gevær.

The men, armed with the machine guns and wearing hoods, arrived in three vehicles before opening fire on a group of young people.

A gun battle with police then took place.

Police have set up a security perimeter around the crime scene, and armed police and officers from the Marseille Naval Fire Battalion are on the scene.

Minst en person skal være såret og sendt til sykehus. Politiet bekrefter at gjerningsmennene er på flukt etter skytingen ved kultursenteret «La Busserine».

A man in his thirties was injured in a fight with the gunmen and rushed to hospital.

Local media reports that the police were responding to the shooting when a dark Renault Megane blocked their path.

Two men armed with a 9mm pistol and a Kalashnikov got out of the vehicle and shot in the air before fleeing the scene.
