At least one person has been murdered after an armed man stormed a retirement home for monks in Montpellier, France, on Thursday evening. Special police units cleared the building, but the suspect remains at large.

The suspect apparently fled the missionaries’ retirement home after fatally stabbing a woman. The victim is believed to be the concierge who lived on the ground floor of the retirement home. A police source told Reuters that the woman contacted authorities before she was stabbed.

The attacker, armed with a shotgun and a knife, entered the three-story nursing home compound at around 9:45pm local time. After the alarm was raised, police and rescue units arrived at the scene.
