PARIS (AA) - Police in southern France are working to defuse standoff at a supermarket with at least one gunman holding several hostages, France’s Interior Ministry said on Friday.

The man had earlier opened fire at four police officers jogging in the nearby town of Carcassonne, injuring at least one, according to French broadcaster BFMTV.

He fled by car and entered the Super U supermarket in the town of Trebes, in the Aude department around 11 am local time (10:46 GMT), where he is believed to be holding several hostages.

France’s Interior Ministry tweeted: "Police intervention underway at Trebes in Aude. The priority is intervention of the police and rescue forces."

The Aude prosecutor said the attacker claimed to be a “soldier of Daesh,” according to French radio Francinfo.
