AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on Monday all efforts were focused on catching the “suspect or suspects” responsible for a shooting in Utrecht that is believed to have killed one person.
Rutte did not repeat earlier comments by counter-terrorism authorities who suggested the shooting may have a terrorist motive.
“Our country today has been jolted by an attack in Utrecht,” Rutte said in a statement. “Police and prosecutors are looking into what exactly happened. What’s known now is that there was shooting at people sitting in a tram in Utrecht, that there were wounded, and possibly deaths.”
