France issues terror warning after school shooting

LIVE'Several injured in shooting at high school in southern France

Grasse - A teenager opened fire at his high school in southeastern France on Thursday, wounding up to four people, in an attack apparently inspired by videos of U.S. mass shootings such as Columbine, officials said.

The suspect is a 16-year-old pupil at the Alexis de Tocqueville high school in the southern town of Grasse.

The town hall has said the incident is not terror-related, but the official police confirmation is yet to come. His name has not been disclosed as he is a minor.

The incident, which does not appear to be linked to terrorism, comes with France on high alert after more than 230 people were killed in the past two years by attackers allied to the militant group Islamic State.

France's minister for education, Najat Belkacem, confirmed she would visit the school.

"We started running, " he said.

The three people with light gunshot injuries were taken to hospital, while the five others were treated for wounds sustained during a stampede after the shooting, the spokesman said.

One young man was arrested overnight and his twin brother was arrested Friday.

At least eight people have been injured in a school shooting in Grasse, southern France. He was carrying a rifle, two handguns and two grenades, and appears to have acted alone, Le Figaro reported.

Police are urging people to avoid the area. "I was totally panicked", one student at the school, Andreas, told BFM television.

Pupils in all schools in Grasse have been confined indoors.
