MASKED gunmen carrying machine guns have shot and killed a teenage boy in a horrifying attack in Amsterdam, according to local media.
Dutch police have confirmed that there have been “multiple victims” in the deadly shooting in the busy Grote Wittenburgstraat neighbourhood in the city centre.
Witnesses claim a teenage boy was shot and killed at a community centre by gunmen wearing balaclavas, reports De Telegraaf.
Other reports suggest the gunmen were carrying AK-47 machine guns and “came looking” for the young victim who is of Moroccan origin.
The boy, described as an adolescent, had been taking part in a kickboxing class at the community centre, reports Het Parool.
Terrified witnesses reportedly hid under tables as masked gunmen stormed the building.
Police have ruled out terrorism as a motive for the attack.
One victim was said to have been resuscitated by emergency workers called to the scene.
At least two people have been rushed to hospital with injuries and no arrests have been made, reports local media.
