Jan. 11 (UPI) — A suspect injured several people in an apparent attack at the Gare du Nord train station early Wednesday, France’s Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said.

Darmanin tweeted that police “quickly neutralized” the suspect.

It was not immediately clear what weapon was used in the attack nor how many people were injured, but TER Hauts-de-France, a regional rail network of the state-owned SNCF railway company, said in a statement that police opened fire on the suspect who “was brought under control.”

“The emergency services intervened and the person evacuated,” it said.

A security perimeter has been erected around the station, which SNCF said continues normal operations.

“Thank you to the police for their effective and courageous response,” Darmanin said.

This is a developing story.
