Several people were killed in a shooting in the Dutch coastal city of Rotterdam on Thursday, Dutch police said. A police spokesman said this on the radio. She did not give a specific number. It was initially reported that three people were injured in shootings at a university clinic and an apartment in Rotterdam. The police had arrested a suspect.

The fire is reported to be under control. The authorities wanted to inform the media at a press conference that evening (6:45 p.m.). Police in the Dutch coastal city said the suspect was 32 years old from Rotterdam.

Shooting at university hospital

Media reported earlier that at least one person was killed in the apartment. According to a police spokesman, police assume that one of the perpetrators is responsible for both incidents.
