Two people have reportedly been killed in a shooting in Old Port of Marseille in France on Tuesday. 

The two were killed in an exchange of fire between gunmen in two cars, local journalists have said. 

The incident comes weeks after three people, including two teenagers, were killed in a shoot-out in Marseille last month. 

The area is notorious for drug wars as several drug networks operate in the region. 

11 people have reportedly been killed in shootouts in the city of Marseille since the beginning of this year.
