Dutch police arrest suspect in Utrecht shooting

Dutch police have arrested a Turkish man suspected of shooting dead at least three people and wounding others on a tram - after he spent hours on the run on Monday.

Authorities tweeted confirmation that 37-year-old Gokmen Tanis had been taken into custody.

The city of Utrecht was placed in lockdown after the shooting occured shortly after rush hour.

Police conducted raids in several locations, as they treated the incident as a terrorist attack.

But hours later - the gunman's motive was still unclear.

A prosecutor suggested he may have been motivated by quote "family reasons." Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency - quoting family members - said the suspect fired at a relative on the tram, then shot at others who tried to help her.

The province's terror threat level was hiked for several hours during the manhunt.

But has now been reduced by one notch.

Local schools had been urged to keep their doors closed.

And security was stepped up at airports, mosques and transport hubs.

Prime Minister Mark Rutte convened crisis talks immediately after the shooting.

Which took place just days after a lone gunman killed 50 people at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.
