French police have reportedly detained the alleged shooter who injured a Greek Orthodox priest using a hunting rifle in the city of Lyon on Saturday as he was locking the church.
The suspect was detained at a diner in the city several hours after the incident, local media reported. He didn’t have the sawn-off hunting rifle, which was allegedly used in the attack, on him.
Lyon’s mayor, Gregory Doucet, said that it was still unclear what had motivated the man to shoot the cleric.
