French police report shootout and explosion in Paris

PARIS (AP) – Police officials in France say there has been an explosion in a bar near a Paris stadium and a shootout in a Paris restaurant.

BFM television says there were several dead in the restaurant shooting in the 10th arrondissement of the capital. Two police officials confirmed the shooting but had no information about casualties.

One of the police officials said there was a separate explosion near the Stade de France north of Paris. It was unclear if the events were linked.

Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to be publicly named.
