A gunman opened fire on a Jewish school in southern France Monday, killing four people — the third shooting in the area in 10 days.
The shooting in the city of Toulouse left a teacher and three children dead, including a 3-year-old, said local prosecutor Michel Valet. A fourth child was injured.
The gunman arrived shortly after 8 a.m. and fled on a motor scooter after the shootings. He is believed to have used two different guns, interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said.
“It’s a horrible tragedy,” Brandet said on CNN affiliate BFM.
It’s the third shooting by a man on a motorcycle in southwest France since March 11, and authorities suspect the cases may be linked, Brandet said.
“Even if it’s too early to say whether or not they are the same weapons, there are similarities,” Brandet said, citing the use of a motorcycle and the location of the killings.
