Armed police are at an Apple store in Amsterdam after a gunman entered the building on a popular shopping street in the city.

The city’s police said in a tweet that “somebody with a firearm is in the store, police are at the location with many (specialised) units to bring the situation under control”.

Local broadcaster AT5 suggested the incident happened at an Apple store and that a person had been taken hostage.

Dutch police confirmed to Sky News that they were dealing with an incident with a person with a weapon “in or near a big electronic store” on the popular shopping street Leidseplein.
