French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe described a supermarket hostage situation in France as a “terrorist act.” Details are incomplete, but it appeared to be a planned attack, according to CNN’s reporting.

The terrorist, driving a vehicle, reportedly tried to run over four police officers out for a morning jog. After missing the police, he opened fire on the officers.

The gunman then fled the scene to a supermarket where he seized the hostages. “According to police, he shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ as he went in. He identified himself as a supporter of ISIS,” CNN’s Jim Bitterman reported.

While details are unconfirmed, Bitterman said that the terrorist may have killed two people while taking the hostages.
