PARIS  — A regional security official said Saturday that youths torched cars and opened fire on police offers during an overnight confrontation with the police in the southeastern French city of Grenoble.

Brigitte Julien says no one was injured in the incident, which started early Saturday morning when rampaging youths stoned a tramway.

They then set cars on fire and opened fire against officers . The officers returned fire, hitting no one, Julien told France-Info radio on Saturday.

One youth, in his twenties, was detained.

The incident came on the heels of the death of a Grenoble Muslim resident who was killed in a shootout with police after he allegedly held up a casino in a nearby town.
