Gunmen open fire at French high school

Two gunmen reportedly opened fire inside a high school in Grasse, France, on Thursday injuring two people including a head teacher.

Paris Police report the attack happened around 1 p.m. at the Alexis de Tocqueville High School.

According to the Daily Mail, one of the gunmen was a 17-year-old student who brought two revolvers, a hunting rifle, and grenades into the school.

He shot and injured two people, including the head teacher, Hervé Pizzinat. Both victims are said to be in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police reports indicate the shooter was targeting Pizzinat and believe he could have an accomplice that is still on the run. Schools that are in that area have been put on lockdown.

This was not the only attack in France on Thursday, according to the Daily Mail.

Thursday morning, a letter bomb exploded in front of a worker at the offices of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Paris. Police reports said the female worker suffered head and hand injuries, as well as damage to her eardrum.

Paris Police Chief Michel Cadot said IMF staff has received threatening calls in recent days which they believe may be connected to Greek radicals.

These two incidents are being investigated separately according to Paris Police.
