PARIS (AP) — Police officials say a group of people, some armed with guns, shot into the air in the French city of Marseille and tried to corner officers who responded to the sound of gunfire.  

Christophe Reynaud of the Marseille police said one resident was hit in the head with a butt of a gun and slightly injured during the incident in the Busserine district on early Monday evening.

Reynaud ruled out terrorism as a motive and said the shooting probably was drug-related.

He says the group drove away and has not been apprehended.
