There was a drive-by shooting in central Lille by hooded gunman who opened fire outside a train station,leaving at least three wounded including a schoolboy thought to be aged 14, with gunshot wound. The 14-year-old boy is believed to have been shot in the leg and another is said to have received neck injuries, say local media.

Armed police have rushed to the scene, Jacques Febvrier located near Porte d’Arras metro station in the south of the city and have now sealed off all roads leading into the city centre as they try to contain the situation and catch the gunman.

The wounded are reported to have been shot several times, according to French news outlet La Voix. Only two of the wounded were found at the scene, while the third made their way to a nearby hospital.

Police now believe the shooter knew the victims

Although anti-terrorist police were called to the scene, there were later reports the shooting was a ‘revenge attack’.

“A car pulled up outside the station and targeted the three youths,” said a police source.

“It appears this was a settling of scores.” None of the injuries are said to be life threatening.

The shooting was thought to be related to the drugs trade in Lille, and was carried out by ‘a hooded man’, said the police source.

France remains in a high state of alert after a spate of deadly ISIS-claimed terror attacks over the past few years.
