Police say a Dutch man pulled a gun in a noisy cafe and opened fire on patrons inside and passers-by, killing one person and wounding three others.

A spokesman said people outside the cafe wrestled the gunman to the ground and held him until police arrived.

The spokesman said the motive was unclear for the shooting in the early hours of Saturday. But it may have begun with a quarrel in the cafe, where a talent contest was under way and loud music was playing.

Police said the man was a 46-year-old Rotterdam resident but gave no further details.
