Three people were killed and several others injured following a shooting on a tram in the Dutch city Monday morning, according to Utrecht’s Mayor.

An earlier manhunt prompted school closures and heightened security in the area while witnesses described scenes of “complete and utter chaos” at the site of the attack.
