A family of four including two children have been shot dead at a train station in northern France this morning.
Police have cordoned off Noyon train station in Oise after the two children — aged between three and five-years-old — as well as a man and a woman were shot dead.
A witness said: ‘I climbed the stairs leading to the docks when I heard shots.
‘I saw four bodies on the ground. I then took a little girl with me to put her in safety.
‘There was a black automatic pistol on the ground. With a passerby, we ran. I was afraid that the man on the ground would revive and shoot again.’
A source close the investigation told L’express: ‘The incident took place around 11:30 am at the station, where an individual fired several people, and two adults, a man and a woman, and two children died.’
It is understood the suspected gunman has committed suicide.
Public prosecutor Virginie Girard said the shooter: ‘obviously died after the incident.’
