Crowds of bystanders were held back by a security perimeter at the site, where police and rescue workers were massed, deploying at least one remote-controlled robot on tracks toward the building where the armed man had barricaded himself. The area was evacuated and the street was cordoned off.

The man reportedly asked to speak to the Iranian embassy to deliver a message to the French government, Reuters reports.

However, police have said there was no indication that the incident was terrorism-related, according to CNN. An Interior Ministry official said negotiations with the suspect were taking place.

A police source said the hostage-taker initially hit one person who was able to escape.
