Paris shisha bar shooting incident sees one person killed and four injured, with customers reportedly overpowering a gunman.

A shooting incident has occurred in the heart of Paris this evening, Monday, July 18. According to reports on Twitter, one person has died and another four have been injured. The event took place outside a shisha bar in Chicha rue Popincourt, in the 11th district, as people sat enjoying the warm summer evening.

Customers in the establishment apparently managed to overpower the gunman and hold him until the police arrived. It is thought that the suspect was not alone as there are also reports of another suspect escaping from the scene of the crime.

The French police are said to be actively searching for the second man who fled. There is no official information available from the authorities confirming the casualties. Local reports have suggested the shooting could be gang-related as a settling of scores, but again this has not been confirmed.

Independent journalist Clement Lanot was quickly on the scene and made early reports on the shooting via his Twitter profile @ClementLanot:
