Priest Shot Outside Church in Lyon, France

PARIS—A man shot a Greek Orthodox priest in front of a church in Lyon on Saturday, just days after three people were killed in a suspected terrorist attack at a basilica on the French Riviera.

The priest was seriously wounded and taken to a local hospital, French police officials said. The gunman remained on the loose, police said, as authorities locked down the area in central Lyon on Saturday afternoon and warned the public to stay away.
