Dutch shooting suspect arrested

A man has been arrested after three people were killed and five wounded, some seriously, in a shooting on a tram in the Dutch city of Utrecht.

Gokmen Tanis, a 37-year-old Turkish man, was found several hours after the attack in a building about two miles (3km) from the scene.

Authorities said the attacker's motive was unclear.

The incident sparked a city-wide manhunt and the closure of schools.

At about 10:45 local time (09:45 GMT), police were called to reports of a shooting on board one of the city's trams at the 24 Oktoberplein junction.

One witness told local media that "a man started shooting wildly".

Several of the injured are in a critical condition.
