Three Dead As Utrecht Shooting Considered Act Of Terrorism

<p><strong><em>Update2: </em></strong>The Utrecht shooting - <strong>in which three people are now dead and nine injured according to the Mayor, </strong>appears to have been revenge for last week's New Zealand mosque attacks, as a Twitter account believed to belong to suspect Gökman Tanis recently posted a photograph of the rifle used by NZ gunman Brenton Tarrant. </p>

<p>The shooting is now being treated as a terrorist attack, per Mayor Jan van Zanen.</p>

<p><em>A previous note about a a Twitter account thought to be linked to the suspect has been deleted.</em></p>

<p><strong><em>Update: </em></strong>Dutch police have launched a manhunt for a 37-year-old Turkish-born Gökman Tanis, and have warned residents not to approach him. </p>
