UPDATE: The suspect has been apprehended.

A shooting on a tram has taken place in Utrecht, Netherlands, which has left 3 dead and 9 wounded. A suspect, identified only as Turkish-born Gökmen Tanış, was wanted by Utrecht Police before being apprehended. The terrorism threat level in the Netherlands rose for the day due to the tram shooting.

Mayor of Utrecht Jan van Zanen has stated that terror is "likely."

The shooting is suspected of being inspired by Turkish President Recep Erdoğan, due to his recent use of the Christchurch shooting video to rally his supporters and Turkey.

A Turkish Twitter account of the same name posted a graphic of Brenton Tarrant's weapon a few days beforehand.

Correction: The name of the shooter is Gökmen Tanış.

  1. Thing is, the NZ shooting is more likely an antijihad revenge than an assault. So naming further jihad clashes “revenge” is totally ungrammatical.
