Gunman left suicide note before Dutch mall shooting

The man who shot dead at least six people in a Dutch shopping mall has been named as 24-year-old Tristan van der Vlis.

The killings took place at a busy shopping centre in the town of Alphen aan den Rijn, about 25km (15 miles) south-west of Amsterdam.

Jeroen Wollaars, a reporter from NOS, says the gun club member had written a note saying explosives were placed in local shopping malls - which are now being searched.
