Gokmen Tanis, 37, born in Turkey, is wanted following the incident in Utrecht, Holland, this morning. Counter-terrorism police are at the scene and officers have said they are considering the possibility of a “terrorist motive”.
Utrecht police said on Twitter: “The police are asking you to look out for 37-year-old Gokmen Tanis (born in Turkey) in connection with the incident this morning. Do not approach him.”
Utrecht police cordoned off a square at a tram station outside the city centre as emergency services were at the scene this morning. Initial reports claimed a man in a tram on the way to Utrecht CS pulled out a weapon and shot several people.
Tanis is believed to have fled in a red car, but he dumped the vehicle a short while later.
A manhunt is now underway.
