Several people were wounded Monday when a gunman opened fire aboard a commuter train in the Dutch city of Utrecht, according to local reports.
Police anti-terrorism units and helicopters responded to the scene at 24 Oktoberplein, local media reported.
The shooter may have had a ‘terrorist motive,’ police spokesman Joost Lanshage said.
“Several shots were fired in a tram and several people were injured. Helicopters are at the scene and no arrests have been made,” said Lanshage.
Prime Minister Mark Rutte said he was “deeply concerned” about the incident.
Jimmy de Koster, who lives in the area, described the unfolding “chaos.”
“I came from my work when it happened. I am standing at the traffic lights on 24 Oktoberplein and I see a woman lying down, I think she is between 20 and 35 years old,” he said, according to Dutch news outlet Telegraaf.
“At that time I heard, ‘Bang! Bang! Bang!’ Four men walked very fast toward her and they tried to drag her away and then I heard three bangs and those guys let go of that woman again.
