Young girl found alive amongst dead bodies in France

Investigators were working Thursday to determine what led to a shooting in eastern France that left four people dead in and around a British-registered car.

A 7-year-old girl was also wounded from the shooting and investigators also found a young girl alive and unharmed in the car, local prosecutor Eric Maillaud told reporters.

The young girl, that appeared to be four, was found in a BMW amongst the bodies of two women and a man, CNN affiliate BFM-TV reported.

A male cyclist was found shot to death near the vehicle and a large number of bullet casings were scattered around.

    @CNN Moderators, why delete my comment in French to the victims and villagers? You are an international news organization.

    How utterly sad!
    I hope they find the person responsible for this reprehensible crime.

    But, why?? I mean what happened? Sounds like any number of bad spy movies. That poor little girl.
