Police have detained a gunman, who had opened fire on a street in the French city of Marseille.
A special operation has been conducted in order to neutralize the suspect, according to La Provence.
After opening fire, the suspect, whose motive remains unclear, barricaded himself in a building.
A police source was cited by France Bleu as saying that the incident is unlikely to be linked to terrorism.
There have been no reports of casualties as a result of the incident so far.
No futher information has been immediately available.
The security situation in France has been tense since the 2015 Paris terrorist attacks, claimed by Daesh. Since then, France had been in a state of emergency, which was replaced by an anti-terrorist legislation in October 2017. The law, which has been widely criticized as compromising the rights and liberties of the French people, created a permanent emergency state and granting the police extra powers to raid houses without warrants.
