    Default Gunman kills at least 2 people in Strasbourg, France

    A gunman started shooting people in Strasbourg, France around 8:00pm local time.

    Initial details are usually sketchy, but the French police have said that the gunman is "known to security services".

    2 people are reported to have been killed, and 11 injured.

    Any theories with respect to this gunman's motive?

    Strasbourg shooting: Gunman at large after two killed and 11 injured - BBC News

    "The gunman, known to security services, is on the run and is being hunted by police. He had been injured in an exchange of gunfire with a soldier, police said.

    The shooting happened close to a Christmas market in one of the central squares, Place Kléber.

    France's counter terrorism prosecutor has opened an investigation.

    Confirming the death toll had risen to two, the French interior minister, Christophe Castaner, who is on his way to the city, called it a "serious public security incident"."

    Did a Muslim extremist do it?

    If so, is that why he was "known to security services"?

    Where did you get that info from?

    Does that mean that he shot 2 more people dead after killing 2 during the initial incident? He was described as being on the run after the initial incident.

    CNN are reporting that the initial incident may be simple criminality, as opposed to terrorism.
