    Schietpartij Utrecht: live persconferentie NCTV

    On the 24 Oktoberplein in Utrecht shots were fired in a tram at around 10.45 hours . There are several wounded. The perpetrator is on the run.

    What we know now:

    There are several wounded after a shooting in a tram. The number of casualties is still unknown.
    The threat level in the province of Utrecht has been scaled up to the very highest level. This has never happened before.
    The police do not rule out a terrorist motive
    Tramway traffic in Utrecht has been halted


    The square, a traffic square, is amply fenced off to give emergency workers space. Several trauma helicopters have been deployed.

    The police and NCTV are taking additional safety measures around Utrecht Central station and the arriving and departing trains, reports NS. The highest threat level for terrorist attacks has still been declared throughout the province. This will in any case last until 18:00 tonight.

    Even if this is a terrorist attack, IMHO it would still be a local thing, maybe even personal. The best location for a terror attack would be the nearby Utrecht Central Station, the largest station in the Netherlands, with trains arriving from and leaving for all corners of the country. I'm always glad when I'm out of it.

    Here's a link to video of the location with the tram on a crossing. I can see no broken windows in the parts of the tram that are visible.

    I am on the Trumanlaan, in the heart of Kanaleneiland. Mass deployment of arrest teams here. The situation is tense.

    Well, that did not take long. Less than 5 minutes by car from the crime scene, and in the same neighbourhood. Since no description of the perpetrator has been given, IMHO the closure of all mosques is probably a tad premature.

    The police have now raided a property on the Trumanlaan. The motivation was a report. "Nothing was found there," according to a spokesman.

    Possible flight car
    Reporter Maino Remmers spoke with a local resident who had noticed the possible red escape car, on the corner of Boomgaardlaan and Tichelaarslaan. "The car had been running for about three hours with the engine on, the window slightly open and a note hanging out," the woman says.

    She went to the car, but is secretive about the contents of the note. "I've read the last line, but I'd rather not say what it said." The forensic service is now on site and a construction site in the area has been evacuated.

    Dreigingsniveau naar hoogste niveau door incident Utrecht

    A witness of the shooting told NRC that a man stood up [ in the tram ] and started shooting around him "with a big pistol". "I was sitting in the back of the tram. He shot around him, but seemed to aim at people sitting on the benches - everyone dived down" says the woman who wants to remain anonymous. "The driver could not open the doors immediately. Two boys next to me then kicked in a window through which I fled outside. More people did that."

    BBM

    So the attack happened from inside, not from the outside. The perp was riding the tram, he must have gotten on it at some point.

    Following the shooting incident at the 24 Oktoberplein, the municipality of Utrecht, the police and the OM (triangle) advise everyone in Utrecht to stay inside until more is known. New incidents cannot be excluded. The police are currently still looking for the perpetrator.

    This seems very local.
    Strangely, all trains are arriving to and leaving from the nearby Central Station according to schedule. So you cannot leave your house, but you can catch a train.

    Gökmen Tanis was known to the police and the press before:


    Gökmen Tanis. the suspect shooter from Utrecht, is the same one who in August 2011 on a GSTV video harrassed our then reporter Chantal Hanse on the Oudegracht in Utrecht. "Your whole ass is wide open" and "and you're a democrat" he said to the Playmate of the Year 2009 - at the time we could still laugh about it (video after the break). Today he is the main suspect of the shooting in a tram in Kanaleneiland, in 2017 he was also suspected of a rape, which was the subject of a court hearing at the beginning of this month. His name and address (in Kanaleneiland) already appeared in 2011 in the comments on Dumpert. GeenStijl spoke today with someone who knows him well, and says that he comes from a strictly religious family. And now he is suspected of a terrorist act.
