"Allahu akbar!" again? France again... Breaking news...

The mojo wire is starting to hum with reports of a shooting near a metro station in Lille, France. It's already Saturday there so I don't expect much until tomorrow (on this side of the pond). Here's what we've heard so far.

According to La Voix du Nord, at least three people, including a 14-year-old, have been injured after a gunman opened fire outside a Lille metro station. The local news outlet says the teenager was struck in the leg, while another person took a bullet to the neck. A third was taken to hospital.

The shooter is believed to have fled the scene, according to public broadcaster France Bleu Nord. Police discovered a dozen shell casings in the parking lot where the shooting occurred. As is now customary in these "incidents", the gendarmes are saying only that "the motive behind the shooting is not clear." No-one has reported hearing shouts of "Allahu akbar!"... yet...
