“A car pulled up outside the station and targeted the three youths”, said a police source, as per reports stated by The Sun. “It appears this was a settling of scores.”

Although anti-terrorist police were called to the scene, it was reported that the shooting was a ‘revenge attack’ and not a terror-related incident.

The police source also added that the shooting was thought to be related to the drugs trade in Lille.

At least three people were injured including a 14-year old, reports French news site La Voix Du Nord. None of the injuries are said to be life-threatening, as per the report.
