The Paris prosecutor's office says a man has been arrested in the investigation of a shooting at a Jewish museum in Brussels that left at least three people dead.

An official with the prosecutor's office says the suspect has been handed to anti-terrorist investigators. She says the man was arrested Friday during a customs inspection at a train and bus station in Marseille.

The man was found to have an automatic weapon of the same type used in the Brussels shootings May 24. The official said ballistics analyses are under way to determine if it is the same weapon.

She was not authorized to be publicly named speaking of ongoing investigations.
