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

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.
