Three rescue helicopters have been sent to the scene -- which has since been cordoned off -- to "monitor" the situation, Lanshage said.
The shooting, which was reported at 10:45 a.m. (5:45 a.m ET), is now over -- however the police operation is ongoing, Lanshage added.
Dutch police have launched an investigation and are also considering "a possible terrorist motive," Utrecht police said on Twitter.

So the spiral of violence has started ??

Unfortunately we saw this coming since the 2001 attacks but people from all sides didn’t do anything to stop it. Wherever Islam exists, the seeds of violence exist. And now it is clashing with the bloodiest kind of humans: the white western race. May God help humanity.

Police identify Utrecht shooting suspect


Dutch police investigating the Utrecht incident have identified a man in connection with the shooting.
In a tweet, officials say they are looking for a 37-year-old Turkish-born man named Gokman Tanis. The tweet — which is accompanied by an image from what appears to be a CCTV camera onboard the tram — adds, “do not approach.”
The photo published by police is time stamped at 10:41 — about four minutes before the incident on the tram took place.

A Turkish businessmsn residing in Utrecht told BBC Türkçe that Tanış had "fought in Chechnya" and that a "few years ago [Tanış] was arrested and released for his connection to ISIS. He was not a part of the Turkish community [in Holland], he was a recluse."
