Gunman Opens Fire In Major City – At Least Six Victims

France is on high alert today after a possible terrorist attack. A gunman reportedly opened fire on a bus full of tourists. Though no deaths have been reported at this time, there were several major injuries.

Six people were hurt when shots were fired at a tourist bus on a motorway in south-east France, police say.

The bus carrying 75 Czech tourists, some schoolchildren, was travelling from Spain to the Czech Republic when it was hit on Saturday night.

Two shots smashed the front and rear windows, Alex Perrin, a prosecutor in the Drome region, said.

Le Dauphin Libere newspaper said more police were stationed on bridges over the road in case of repeat incidents.

It is believed the attacker was using a hunting rifle to target the bus from a bridge over the A7 motorway near Saulce sur Rhone, roughly halfway between Lyon and Marseille.

Please send prayers to France!
