The shooting was heard at several locations in Utrecht, the Dutch Counter-Terrorism Agency said.
Utrecht is located at 25 miles south of Amsterdam.
Jimmy de Koster who lives in the neighborhood said he was returning from his work when it happened. He said
” I was standing at the traffic lights on 24 October Square. I saw a woman between 20 and 30 laying on the ground. I heard three shots. Then I saw them running fast towards the woman and dragged her away. Then they fired again and let her go.”
Jimmy de Koster also said two of the men walked towards the old hospital.
Another eyewitness has said a man got up and started shooting with a big gun. She said she was at the back of the tram. The shooter seemed to be targeting people on the benches.
