Student, 17, arrested after shooting at school in Grasse, France

 

A 17-year student has been arrested after opening fire in an A-level college in Grasse on the French Riviera, injuring several and prompting the government to briefly issue a terror warning.

The student, carrying two hand guns, a hunting rifle and two “training”grenades, entered the Alexis de Tocqueville A-level college and opened fire on Thursday morning, French time, local media reported.

The headmaster was among eight people injured in the attack, said a interior ministry spokesman. The headmaster was reportedly shot in the arm. A student was hit by a ricochet. The others suffered light injuries apparently in the panic.

However, other official sources suggested that only three people had been “lightly injured”.
