MOSCOW (Sputnik) – An unknown gunman opened fire inside a bar in France’s southern city of Marseille, leaving six people injured, media reported.

The Provence news outlet reported that the incident took place at La Terminus bar at around 08:30 p.m. [19:30 GMT] on Thursday.

One of those injured has sustained a serious wound.

France Bleu reported that the shooter was at large.

While those injured were hospitalized, the authorities blocked off the area near the bar.

The police launched a probe into the incident. They consider score-settling as one of the reasons behind the shooting.

Xavier Tarabeux, the public prosecutor of Marseille, told France Bleu that back in 2017, a 26-year-old man was killed in a score-settling incident at the same bar.
