PARIS – A man in his 60s shot himself dead with a sawn-off shotgun Thursday in the hall of a Paris nursery school in front of about a dozen children and an adult, police said.
The man, who was not affiliated with the school, killed himself after walking into the school near the Invalides monument in central Paris.
The identity of the man or his motive were not immediately clear, police said.
The nursery school is a private Catholic institution which also has primary and secondary sections. A psychological support team has been sent to the school. (AFP)
