PARIS (1010 WINS/AP) -- The suspect in a hostage-taking situation in southern France has been shot to death by police, police union official Yves Lefebvre said.

French national police say two others people have been killed and about a dozen wounded in a shooting and hostage-taking in a supermarket in southern France in the town of Trebes.

The reason for the shooting and hostage-taking is unclear, as is the identity of the attacker.

French President Emmanuel Macron says all evidence suggests shootings are a terrorist attack.

The school system in the Trebes region says all students are safe and will remain inside schools until further notice. Parents and relatives have been told not to come to pick them up.
