Shooting in Dutch shopping mall: 7 people killed and 16 wounded

From BBC news:

At least two people have been killed and several others wounded by a gunman in the Netherlands town of Alphen aan den Rijn, Dutch media say.

The reports say the shootings took place in a shopping centre in the town, 21km (13 miles) south-west of Amsterdam.

No cause has been given for the shootings.

One witness said the attacker had a machine gun and that there were from five to 10 deaths.

The local government issued a statement saying the number of dead and wounded could not be confirmed, AP news agency said.

"The mall has been cleared and a wide area around it is cordoned off," the statement said.


EDIT: It is now confirmed that 7 people were killed, including the gunman. And 16 people are wounded

Re: Shooting in Dutch shopping mall



It has just been on the news in the Netherlands.
Four people have been killed, including the attacker who shot himself in the head.
And they say that 9 people are wounded.

My thoughts and prayers goes out to all families, friends of victims and anyone affected by the shooting.

Horrible new. Such a tragedy
Some of the victims are children.
Three other malls in Alphen a/d Rijn have been evacuated this afternoon as a precaution. This was based on a note that has been found.

On the other note , they sell the guns freely in Holland? This must have happened because of that.

Re: Shooting in Dutch shopping mall: 7 people killed and 16 wounded

sad news, please if there is more news update!

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

In a significant majority of such awful cases the guns involved are legally owned.

No one said the gun laws and attitude to guns are the only factors. Such incidents happen anywhere though some countries much more than others.

But I can't be bothered to go down that track again as we will never agree, so it best left there.
