A 16-year-old student, Killian Barbey, who had troubled relations with his peers opened fire at a high school in southern France on Thursday, wounding three other students and the principal who tried to intervene, officials said.

Alexis de Tocqueville school in the town of Grasse, a town 40 kilometers from the southern city of Nice, was attacked by Killian Barbey, who was believed to be armed with a rifle, several pistols and a small grenade. The student entered a classroom and left without doing anything, supposedly not able to find the person he was looking for. There was no reason to suspect the shootings were terrorism-related and that there did not appear to be any other suspects.

There were 4 people shot out of which 3 were students and one was the high school principal. There were at least 10 other victims with small wounds.
