Police release photo of Turkish suspect after shooting on Dutch tram kills 3, wounds 9…

This morning there was another deadly shooting, this time on a tram in the Dutch city of Utrecht in the Netherlands.

Here’s more:

FOX 5 – A shooting on a tram in the central Dutch city of Utrecht on Monday left three people dead and nine people wounded, police said, adding that they are considering the possibility of a “terrorist motive.” A manhunt was launched for the shooter.

Police, including heavily armed officers, flooded the area after the shooting that happened in the morning on a tram at a busy traffic intersection in a residential neighborhood.

Dutch authorities have named a 37-year-old Turkey-born man as linked to the tram shooting in the central Dutch town of Utrecht.

Police showed the picture of a bearded mark sitting on public transport and dressed in a dark blue top with a hood tucked in his neck. Police identified him as Gokman Tanis.

It was the first image distributed of someone linked to the shooting. Police warned citizens not to approach the man but call authorities instead.

Police are saying Tanis was linked to the shooting, but more than likely he’s the shooter himself and they just aren’t saying it yet.



Here’s the photos of Tanis:

The police are already suggesting this is the work of terrorism:

The mayor of Utrecht says a “terror motive” is the most plausible reason behind the deadly shooting.

Utrecht police said that trauma helicopters were sent to the scene and appealed to the public to stay away to allow first responders to do their work. Television footage showed that a body appeared to be lying next to the tram.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte called the situation “very worrying” and the country’s counterterror coordinator said in a tweet that a crisis team was meeting to discuss the situation. The alert level was raised to its highest level for the area around Utrecht.

Police spokesman Bernhard Jens said that no one had been detained yet.

I don’t know why Tanis did it, assuming he’s the shooter, but it feels like a revenge shooting by a Muslim over the shooting that took place in New Zealand last Friday.

We’ll keep you updated.

Islam is by far the worlds largest hate group. . . The Muslim repression of women includes legalized rape of women, honor killings of women and daughters, forced female clitoral mutilation, male guardianship of women, modesty dress codes, lack of marital rights, forced marriage and denying basic human rights. Their repression of gays goes beyond merely disapproving of homosexuality. Sharia teaches that homosexuality is a vile form of fornication, punishable by death. The Muslim persecution of Jews has been occurring since Mohammed destroyed the Jewish tribes of the Hedjaz (present day Saudi-Arabia) in 624-628 and their relentless and horrific persecution has continued every subsequent century. Today all Muslims nurse their children and our grandchildren on hatred” for Jews and Zionists. All over the Middle East, hatred for Jews and Zionists can be found in textbooks for children as young as 3, complete with illustrations of Jews with monster-like qualities. Mainstream… Read more »

Probably another muslim sent by Erdogan to kill as many non-muslims as possible. The muslim worship of the great satan allah makes all muslims the largest hate group on the planet.

The “Religion of Peace”. A westerner does something incredibly stupid & evil and is uniformly condemned. A muslim does similar, and it’s “Who are we to judge”? Time to take the gloves off.

He just needs a job and then he will be fine! Maybe when the Green New Deal passes, he can come retrofit houses over here in the US.

Again, it’s Chelsea Clinton’s fault.
