PARIS (AP) - Eight people have been slightly wounded in a shooting incident Friday at a nursery school in the French city of Lyon, regional authorities said.

The shooting at the Harmony nursery school occurred just as parents were coming to collect their children in the late morning. The shots appeared to be aimed at the building.

Five of the injured received light wounds and the others suffered even less significant injuries, said Raphaelle Padovani, a spokesperson for the regional prefecture.

Police have surrounded the area and are attempting to find out where the shots originated, she said.
