At least one police officer has been wounded in Brussels during an anti-terror raid, the Independent reports. Multiple armed suspects reportedly opened fire on officers before fleeing the scene. At time of publication, the incident was described as "not resolved." A "major police operation" is currently underway in the area, BBC News reports.

Though local media hasn’t confirmed the involvement of counter-terrorism agencies, they have confirmed the injury of one officer during the alleged shootout. The shootout reportedly happened during a raid in the Forest suburb, with the Independent reporting the raid was carried out in connection with the ongoing Paris attacks investigation.

Terrorists killed 130 people during the Paris attacks last November, including a coordinated attack at the Bataclan theatre that left 89 concert attendees dead. Hundreds of others were injured, with seven of the attackers reported as deceased following the orchestrated act of violence.
