PARIS - One person was killed and at least four were seriously wounded in a bar shooting in a southern suburb of Paris on Friday afternoon, local media reported.

The shooting occurred at 13:00 local time (1200 GMT) in a bar in Orly-ville. The initial death toll was reported to be two, but it was later put to be one.

Police said that a car pulled up to the bar around lunchtime, a man got out of the car and started shooting.

News channel BFMTV, citing preliminary investigation, said that the dead man was a worker who had lunch at the bar with his colleague who suffered serious injuries.

Police were investigating the shooting. A burnt-out BMW car suspected of being the getaway car was founded shortly afterwards in a nearby city.

It was reported that a man with "suspicious behavior" was arrested near the burnt car and put into custody.
