TOULOUSE: A man suspected of carrying out a series of deadly shootings in France, including an attack on a Jewish school, has been arrested after a siege at his home, a media report said Wednesday.

It is still unclear whether the man surrendered voluntarily, or whether the police snatched him after besieging his home Wednesday, RIA Novosti quoted the BFM TV channel as saying.

Jonathan Sandler, a 30-year-old teacher, his two sons, Gabriel and Arie, and seven-year-old Myriam Monsonego, daughter of the Ozar Hathora school principal, died in the attack in Toulouse Monday. Police had Wednesday surrounded the suspect's hideout in Toulouse.

The suspect fired at the police from a house where he was holed up alone and one officer was hurt during the exchange of gunshots, Xinhua reported. Interior Minister Claude Glean told reporters that the suspect's brother has also been arrested.
