Fourth person dies as a result of Netherlands tram shooting
A 74-year-old man has died from injuries sustained in the Utrecht incident.
A fourth victim has died from injuries sustained in the March 18 tram shooting in the Netherlands, an incident being investigated as a possible extremist attack.
The 74-year-old man died on Thursday.
Two men and a woman died on the day of the attack in the city of Utrecht, and one victim remains injured in hospital.
No further details were available.
The main suspect in the shooting in the central Dutch city faces multiple manslaughter or murder charges and authorities continue to investigate “terrorist intent” in the attack, the prosecutor’s office said in a statement.
The suspect, a Utrecht resident of Turkish descent, was arrested hours after the shooting.
He has said he acted alone.
Prosecutors say the man has a long criminal record and did not know any of his victims.
