Greek Orthodox Priest Shot in Lyon, France, Gunman on the Run

A gunman is on the run after a Greek Orthodox priest was shot at a church in Lyon, France, according to reports.

The shooting is said to have taken place at the Église Greek Orthodox church in the Jean-Macé sector of the city’s 7th district, with the cleric suffering life-threatening injuries. First responders are at the scene, which has been cordoned off.

 BFM TV reports that the victim, who they describe as an archpriest, was shot by a lone male armed with a handgun who approached him which he was locking up his church, citing police sources. It is believed that the gunman remains at large at this time.
