French police have arrested a suspect in connection with last weekend’s Brussels Jewish museum shooting, according to the AFP news agency.

The detainee is thought to be the gunman who killed three people at the museum and critically injured a fourth.

According to sources close to the investigation, the 29-year-old Frenchman had a Kalashnikov assault rifle and a revolver with ammunition in his possession.

The weapons were said to be similar to those used in the attacks. He had a baseball cap similar to the one worn by the gunman last weekend.

The suspect has been described as a “jihadist” who is believed to have been in Syria last year with jihadist groups.
