Shocking reports are emerging of a mass shooting in Holland.
Dutch police have said that several people have been shot in the city of Utrecht.
A man opened fire on a tram and the shooting took place at around 10:45 local time (09:45 GMT).
According to news website AD, the gunman then fled the scene, that took place in the city centre.
Utrecht Police said they are considering the possibility of a “terrorist motive”.
Dutch police suspect at least one fatality from the shooting in Utrecht, a spokeswoman has said.
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said he was “deeply concerned” and has now cancelled his weekly coalition talks, while this situation is still on-going.
Police have now named the suspect in the shooting attack which has left three people dead and nine others injured.
Officers identified Turkish-born Gokman Tanis, 37, in connection with the incident. The public have been urged not to approach him.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
