  • Police say authorities have been hunting for a second suspect but he is no longer being pursued

French police are hunting for at least one suspect after a knife attack near Lyon that left one dead and six injured.

Emergency services said three of the wounded were in a serious condition.

Two men, one armed with a knife and the other with a skewer, carried out the attack in Villeurbanne, a Lyon suburb, in southeastern France, the official said, without giving further details on the motive for the stabbing.

The suspected attacker assaulted residents waiting at a bus stop and then ran towards an underground station before being seized by other local people and transport staff, Lyon mayor Lyon Gerard Collomb told reporters.

Labor Day weekend forecast
The temperatures are going to stay pretty consistent with daily highs of 24 C and overnights lows of 13 C all weekend long. Unfortunately, the frontal boundary is showing signs of getting hung up Labor Day, which will result in the threat of rain.

The regional official couldn't be named because of French government policy.

The suspect provided contradictory information to the police and it was unclear if the 19-year-old victim knew the attacker, according to officials. He says national security forces aren't involved in the search, just a few dozen local police officers and a helicopter.

France saw a series of knife attacks a year ago.
