 One dead, two wounded in Amsterdam shooting: police

Policemen stand guard at a closed off lane following a shooting at the Grote Wittenburgstraat in Amsterdam on January 26, 2018. One person is reported dead and several injured in the shooting, which cause is yet to be established.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands – A shooting in downtown Amsterdam on Friday night left one person dead and two injured, Dutch police said.

"One person has died and two wounded, a man and a young woman, were taken to hospital after a shooting on Grote Wittenburgerstraat, in the city centre," Amsterdam police spokesman Leo Dortland told AFP.

"This is clearly not a terror attack, but a criminal incident," he said, adding that police were still looking for the attacker or attackers.

Witnesses heard several gunshots and saw a hooded man run away, Dutch media reported.

"The research unit has launched a broad investigation," Dortland said, adding that the streets in the area had been cordoned off.

The police were interviewing witnesses and taking fingerprints at the crime scene.
