At least 35 people were killed in a shooting in central Paris Friday night.
Paris police confirmed to French news outlets that there were at least three attacks, with gunmen reportedly using AK-47 automatic weapons.
There have reportedly been over 100 people taken hostage at the Bataclan theater.
Reports also say there were a series of explosions at the Stade de France, France's national stadium — which is currently on lockdown.
President Francois Hollande was at the stadium watching the French soccer team play Germany, but left the arena to go to the Interior Ministry.
Police are outside the scenes at the other shootings, which include restaurants in a neighborhood that was packed with civilians, who are now reportedly evacuating the area.
Authorities suspect this may be a terrorist attack, but nothing is confirmed as of yet.
