A teenager released four women after holding them hostage in a convenience store near Toulouse in southern France for more than four hours on Tuesday.

The 17-year-old, who was arrested at a yellow vest protest in December, had made no demands before releasing the women from the building in Blagnac.

He fired at least one shot over the heads of officers and had demanded a negotiator, the source said, adding that the incident did not appear to be terrorism-related.

Officers from the elite RAID (Search Assistance Intervention Deterrence) police unit have been called to the scene to assist local officers.
