Shots were fired adjacent to Amsterdam’s central station on late Tuesday, in a further sign of growing tensions in the European continent.
Local reports had indicated a drive-by shooting was conducted and police set off in hot pursuit after the car, before arresting the shooter. However, those reports have yet to be confirmed.
Dutch police were quoted by Reuters as saying the shots were warning shots which were fired while arresting a suspect.
Police added that no one was wounded in the incident.
Circumstances of the incident are being checked, and it remains unclear if it was terror related. Details likely will become clearer as the arrested suspect is investigated.
The incident in the capital of the Netherlands comes just hours after Brussels was attacked by Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists on Tuesday morning, in bombings targeting the city’s airport and metro system in which 34 people were murdered and nearly 200 were wounded.
