BRUSSELS — Police detained a suspect Monday after an attacker tried to crash a car through the gates of an army barracks in southern Belgium and fled in the vehicle after shots were fired, the prosecutor's office said.

The incident occurred near the French-speaking town of Namur, south of Brussels. The suburb of Flawinne is the site of one of Belgium's major military barracks, home to the 2nd Commando Battalion.
