Holland: Police shoot dead gunman

(Amsterdam) Wednesday evening police were informed that a man with a rifle was on a path behind the country's central bank.

So they investigated and said person approached them and started shooting, the police returned fire and the 31 year old gunman was shot dead, with a bystander who was cycling past at the time injured. Currently the Dutch police are reporting that this wasn't a terrorist incident.
Somebody managed to record the gunfight , which comes across as pretty aggressive. I'll report more tomorrow.

Update 07/02/2019 
Detectives investigating Wednesday night's shooting say the 31-year-old man who was killed was carrying a replica weapon that "could not be differentiated" from a real weapon. He was shot after he began walking toward police responding to reports of an armed man walking the streets.
