One killed in Dutch cafe shooting

A Dutch man has opened fire at a crowded cafe in Rotterdam, killing one person and injuring three others.
Dutch police said bystanders wrestled the gunman to the ground and held him until officers arrived. A police spokesman said the man was a 46-year-old Rotterdam resident, but gave no further details. He said the motive for the early morning shooting was unclear, but may have begun with a quarrel in the cafe, where a talent contest was under way.
The shooting took place at 01:00 local time, according to Dutch police. One person was wounded inside the cafe and three people were hit on the street, one fatally. The wounded are in stable condition in hospital.
