The Bataclan is a concert hall where some 60 people were reportedly taken hostage Friday night as part of a series of attacks on the city by unknown assailants. At least 15 have been killed near the theater, according to the BBC, and French authorities are telling people to stay indoors.
Media outlets also report automatic weapons fire and explosions coming from near the Bataclan. Police launched a raid on the Bataclan, according to Fox New, amid reports of new explosions and gunfire.
