This is just breaking and all I am seeing are tweets

French train spokesman: An armed man was overpowered by passengers and arrested in the station at Pas-de-Calais - @lemondef

No more info but I wonder how many lives were saved because the passengers took action? Was it another ISIS attack?

Link is in French sorry

French actor Jean-Hugues Anglade is among the injured in train shooting - @francetvinfo

Gunfire broke out on an international train Friday evening that left at least three passengers wounded, France's state railway said.
The shooting occurred near the town of Arras in northern France around 6:00 p.m. local time (1600 UTC) . Local media said the unidentified suspect used a Kalashnikov-style assault weapon in the attack before being overpowered by the train's passengers.

That's scary... however, I'm glad they managed to stop him before more people got injured - or worse.

Nice to read a outcome that differs from past similar events. To the passengers that put aside personal safety to disarm a potential mass murderer, bravo for their actions.

One can only hope that while disarming him they managed to break a limb or 2.
I wondered about when did Europeans get so gutsy to do something like that?
OOO RAH!! Damn good thing those leathernecks were there.
I should imagine they singlehandedly restored US honor in France.
Aside from the few mad radical Muslims cursing them)

So was it just a coincidence that three of Uncle Sam's Misguided Children (USMC) were there? Or was it just another staged event?

World's dumbest shooter.

He should have known there would be U.S. soldiers on a train to Amsterdam (sight seeing of course wink wink
)

It's like robbing a donut shop in the morning and not expecting a cop to be around.

Gunman Arrested? Oh great. Next time take his weapon and shoot him. Now he becomes a political, religious prisoner in the Religion Wars.

Thank goodness that there weren't more casualties...

imho, we are going to begin seeing many more radical Islamist attacks in Europe in the coming years! This is the tip of the iceberg!

That's a no win situation. You arrest him and he becomes a religious prisoner that can be bartered for. Or you kill him, and he becomes a religious martyr to inspire others.

It's a loss either way.

One report says just two, one said to be critically injured, very brave guys indeed.

Nice job


Made me smile seeing the press describe the US Marines as "unarmed". If they still do the unarmed combat training that they used to, anyone who thinks they'd be an easy unarmed target is sorley mistaken.

Just because someone hasn't got a weapon on them, it doesn't mean they aren't more harmful than you and your gun or knife.

Again.....nice job lads...that should get you a few beers bought for you
