Amsterdam: At least three persons died and several injured in shooting in the Dutch city of Netherlands's Utrecht. The shooting was reported in a residential neighbourhood on Monday morning.

Police are investigating the shooting that took place at the 24 Oktoberplein in Utrecht. According to the police, the shooting is a possible terror attack.

Dutch police suspect a 37-year-old Turkish man in connection with the shooting. "The police ask you to watch out for 37-year-old Gokman Tanis (born in Turkey) in connection with this morning's incident," News agency Reuters said, quoting a police statement.

The shooting comes barely three days after the ghastly shooting at two mosques in New Zealand's Christchurch what left at least 50 people dead.

28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant, a suspected white supremacist, was charged with murder on Saturday. Tarrant was remanded without a plea and is due back in court on April 5 where police said he was likely to face further charges.
