PARIS (AP) - A police official says two people have surrendered in the search for the driver of a car that tried to crash barricades near the Tour de France finish line.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t allowed to speak about the case, said one of the car’s occupants was hospitalized after police opened fire Sunday morning.

Police found the car with bullet impacts near the Place de la Concorde.

The official said Monday the driver was believed to be a 17-year-old boy without a license, one of those who surrendered. A woman was injured in the crash, he said.

Paris is on edge since January attacks by Islamic extremists on satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and a kosher grocery left 20 people dead, including the three attackers.
