At least one person has been injured after three gunmen opened fire near a restaurant in Paris. The incident occurred outside the Chez Papa restaurant on Boulevard de la Bastille, local media reported.

One man was shot in the stomach in front of the restaurant. French police said the unnamed victim suffered wounds to the abdomen. The gunman who shot him was seen fleeing the scene before he was later arrested by police and taken into custody. Two others are said to be on the run. "We have no names for those involved," said a local police spokesman.

The shootout is thought to have been sparked by an argument between two men. French police said the man's injuries were not life threatening.

Remy Buisine, who was at the scene, tweeted: "The investigation takes place not in the restaurant 'Chez Papa', nor before. But across the road in a small park."

A video taken at the scene shows emergency services outside the eatery. Early indications suggest that the incident is not terrorism related.

The shooting comes around four months after an ISIS terror cell killed 130 in a series of attacks across the city which remains on high alert. On 13 November, eight suicide bombers unleashed a wave of atrocities on the French capital on six major sites including a street cafe and the Bataclan theatre which was the scene of a blood bath. A total of 130 people died and hundreds more were injured.
