Strasbourg shooting: At least four dead, several seriously injured in attack at Christmas market - latest newsA “lone gunman” remains at large after killing at least four people and seriously injuring several others in the eastern French city of Strasbourg near its famed Christmas market visited by millions. The authorities are treating the attack as a terrorist act. Anti-terrorist prosecutors have opened an investigation. A manhunt involving police and soldiers is underway with French media saying the gunman was on the loose but had already been “identified” as being on a list of “security threats”.  The gunman was wounded by soldiers on patrol as part of France's Sentinelle anti-terror operation but managed to flee, said police. According to police, he was later located to rue Epinal and shots were being exchanged. The European Parliament based in the city was in lockdown after reports of the shooting, with British and other MEPs, staff and journalists unable to leave the building which is a few kilometres from the square.

With the attacker still on the run, the French and German authorities have strengthened checks on the border, which is near Strasbourg. According to Dernières Nouvelles d'Alsace, a local paper, a gunman opened fire in the busy rue des Grandes-Arcades at around 8pm local time. "Several sites" in the city centre were concerned, it added. These included rue des Orfèvres, rue des Grandes-Arcades and Grand'Rue.

He said the man had died. 10:23PM Reports of a second suspect According to Strasbourg town hall, another operation is taking place at Place Broglie.
