A major police hunt was underway in the Netherlands Tuesday after a man was shot dead by a hooded suspect in a residential street near Amsterdam.
Officers were looking for a brown van that may have been used in the shooting, which took place close shortly after noon local time (6 a.m. ET) near two schools in the northern suburb of Zaandam.
A picture widely shared on social media showed a body in the street close to a hooded man dressed in black carrying what appeared to be an automatic weapon.
The street was littered with spent bullet cases, according to one report.
