Utrecht shooting: Gunman carries out mass shooting on tram - police on scene

This is still just breaking so barely any details, will update as it comes...

So far all I'm hearing is "several people injured" so hopefully no (innocent) deaths. I wonder if this is some kind of twisted idea of "retribution" as was promised by some Islamic extremists in the wake of the NZ massacre.

Edit: 1 person now confirmed dead by police. Manhunt is still underway.

Man fires on passengers in tram in Utrecht, Netherlands, several injured, attacker at large - media

Multiple shots were fired in a tram in a Dutch city of Utrecht, leaving several people injured, police said. Emergency services and anti-terror teams have arrived at the scene.

A square around a tram station outside downtown Utrecht is on lockdown following the shooting, local media reported. Police have cordoned off the area and adjacent streets, but the perpetrator managed to escape.

Ambulances and emergency services are also present although the number of injured is yet to be clarified.

Yep - now confirmed by police:


A GUNMAN has opened fire in the central Dutch city of Utrecht killing at least one person and injuring a number of others, police said.

Also:


Dutch media has suggested there might have been multiple gunmen at a number of different locations across the city. Officers confirmed a manhunt was underway in the city. National co-ordinator for counter-terrorism and security Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg said a terrorist motive could not be ruled out.

No description of the attacker/s.

Is it because they are hiding something or because unless stated specifically (like NZ) it’s just assumed everyone knows?

They describe the car they’re looking for in more detail ffs........they say it’s red
Be on the lookout for a red car everyone

the attacker(s) are still on the run. No motives are known at the moment...

What I understand so far is that 3 people are injured and 1 has died. (not sure if this was one of the injured)

Terrorist attack is not ruled out but it could also be some score that needed settling..

Peace

Twisted revenge, twisted copycat or some gangland thing?
One report via sky said that there was an altercation with a woman on the floor as a result.
So who knows?

It's probably because they aren't allowed to define suspects by race anymore, which is completely ridiculous.

I would like to point out that most shootings here in the Netherlands are the result of disputes between criminals (big-time drug dealers and the likes) or relationship problems.

Apparently, they have been worried about terrorism though. This came out in Sept 2018:



Netherlands Travel Advisory

September 28, 2018

Netherlands - Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution

Terrorism: Terrorist attacks have occurred and/or specific threats against civilians, groups, or other targets may exist.

Exercise increased caution in the Netherlands due to terrorism.

Terrorists continue plotting possible attacks in the Netherlands. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets/shopping malls, local government facilities, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, parks, major sporting and cultural events, educational institutions, airports, and other public areas.

Read the Safety and Security section on the country information page.

If you decide to travel to the Netherlands:

•Be aware of your surroundings when traveling to tourist locations and large crowded public venues.
•Follow the instructions of local authorities including movement restrictions related to any ongoing police action.
•Monitor local media for breaking events and adjust your plans based on new information.
•Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive Alerts and make it easier to locate you in an emergency.
•Follow the Department of State on Facebook and Twitter.
•Review the Crime and Safety Report for the Netherlands.
•U.S. citizens who travel abroad should always have a contingency plan for emergency situations. Review the Traveler’s Checklist.

Could be retaliation....or not. But I wonder, will those officials who came out in solidarity with Muslims regarding the NZ mosque attacks also come out in solidarity against this incident as well. I'm specifically referencing the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan who held a press conference regarding the NZ mosque shootings.

And I will state, this is a horrid event and these murderers need to stop. People need to quit killing each other and CHOOSE to get along despite differences.
