Utrecht shooting: 'Three dead' as man opens fire in tram

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-47611811

Quote:
A gunman has opened fire inside a tram in the Dutch city of Utrecht, killing one person and injuring several others, reports say.

The area in the west of the city has been cordoned off by authorities, and emergency services are at the scene.

The gunman reportedly fled the scene by car. Police have asked people to stay away from the area and schools to keep their doors closed.

They say they are investigating a "possible terrorist motive".
Appalling!

A update from the Utrecht police.

Utrecht police issued a CCTV picture of the suspect, whom they named as Turkish-born Gökman Tanis, aged 37, and warned people not to approach him themselves but to alert the authorities if they saw him. They also appealed for witness photographs.

Re: Utrecht shooting: 'One dead' as man opens fire in tram

Re: Utrecht shooting: 'One dead' as man opens fire in tram

Was in The Netherlands a few weeks ago, remember thinking what a peaceful happy country it seemed. NZ, seemed the same. It just takes a maniac and a gun, can happen anywhere. However the less guns around, and the more checks needed to get one, the better I'd suggest.

Then you get a knife crime epidemic like we have in London.

No that's something you just conjured up.
