Gunmen opened fire in the central French city of Tours on Monday, killing several people. Two police officers were also injured.

Police encircled an underground parking lot across from the city's train station where the assailants were believed to have taken refuge, and train traffic was shut down.

Authorities said they believed there were two gunmen, one armed with a grenade. Eyewitnesses said that they were wearing balaclavas.

Reports on French radio said up to four people had died in the attack, and as many as 10 were injured. It was unclear what motivated the shooting.
