Gunman Opens Fire in Rotterdam Cafe

A gunman has opened fire in a busy cafe in Holland, killing one person and injuring three others, police have said.

The man attacked customers in the premises and then ran outside where he shot at bystanders on the street.

A police spokesman said people outside the cafe wrestled the gunman to the ground and held him until officers arrived.

The motive for the shooting, which happened in the early hours in Rotterdam, is not yet known.
But it may have begun with an argument in the cafe, where a talent contest was taking place.
One person was wounded inside the premises and three people were hit on the street, one fatally, the police spokesman said.

Officers said the man was a 46-year-old resident of the city but gave no further details.
