Eight people were injured after a shooting at a high school in the small southern French town of Grasse, the interior ministry said.

Police sources told Reuters the student was apprehended carrying a rifle, two handguns, and two grenades.

One person has been arrested. Police have made one arrest.

The regional spokeswoman said the school had been placed on "attack alert." and the suspect at Alexis de Tocqueville high school shootout is in police custody. A national police official said earlier there did not appear to be any other suspects.

Brandet also said there was no confirmation of reports that a second individual had been involved in the attack and was now on the run.

All schools in Grasse were locked down after the late-morning shooting, which led panicked students to flee the school and hide, local authorities said.
